Last day of Georgia legislature session, measures pass or die.

Atlanta — The two-year Georgia legislative session concludes Thursday, with bills having to pass both the House and Senate or die. Lawmakers will determine whether to allow sports betting and enhance immigration law enforcement cooperation. Income tax cuts and a bill to relax Georgia's health care facility permitting regulations have passed.

A bill to expand Medicaid to low-income individuals and reform Georgia's film and TV tax incentives are unlikely to pass. After the session finishes, Gov. Brian Kemp has 40 days to sign, veto, or let legislation pass without his signature. Since all 56 Senate seats and 180 House seats are up for grabs this year, many lawmakers will focus on reelection.
