The 2017 Legislative Session to Begin in January
The Georgia General Assembly will convene on January 9, 2017, for the start of the year's legislative session. The state House of Representatives and state Senate meet in regular session on the second Monday in January for no longer than 40 legislative (rather than calendar) days each year. All bills passed by both legislative chambers during the 40 days are sent to the governor for his signature or veto. As a state agency, the Georgia Composite Medical Board follows this process closely, as many bills passed by these lawmakers and signed by the governor have a direct impact upon the Board and its activities.
