Today is the last day most legislation must pass either the House or Senate at the Georgia State Capitol and cross over to the other chamber.

105 pieces of legislation were scheduled for a vote on what is known as Crossover Day.

While there are ways around the deadline, including copying a bill and pasting it into another bill that has already crossed over, it is also a way party leadership lets lawmakers know their bill may not make this session.

WABE politics reporter Sam Gringlas was at the Capitol for the long day of deal-making.

He said that reforms to Georgia’s Film Tax Credit are up for a vote in the House, while the Religious Freedom Restoration Act legislation is scheduled for a floor vote in the Senate.

Voting occasionally lasts until the early hours of the morning.
