Day 1 - January 8, 2007

The First Session of the 149th Georgia General Assembly was gaveled in this morning at the State Capitol in Atlanta. Legislators wasted no time electing leadership in both chambers. Lawmakers' Jesse Freeman has details from the Senate and our newest team member Sandra Parrish has coverage of the House.

Governor Sonny Perdue, Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle, and Georgia's constitutional officers will take the oath of office this afternoon at the 2007 Inauguration Ceremony. As in 2003, the event will be held at the Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta. Lawmakers co-Anchors David Zelski and Nwandi Lawson have the highlights.

All that and more tonight on Lawmakers.
