Legislative Day 16 - 2011

A Sunday Sales measure is on hold after Republican leaders in the Senate announced they may not have the votes to pass the bill. Senate Bill 10 would allow local governments to hold referendums on Sunday alcohol sales. Many proponents felt passage this year was likely because Governor Deal had indicated he would sign the bill into law if passed.Former Governor Sonny Perdue threatened vetoes on similar measures earlier.

Also, a bill that will allow charter school students to participate in extracurricular activities at their district schools passed its Senate committee today.

We are joined in-studio for some analysis with Buddy Darden, a former state legislator and congressman who is senior counsel at McKenna Long and Aldridge, and Chuck Clay, a former state Senator and partner at Brock Clay.
