Legislative Day 18 - February 9, 2012

This is the 18th legislative day of the 2012 session.

Coming up on tonight's program, new life for the charter schools amendment. The house votes today to reconsider the resolution to allow state charter schools. The measure failed on the floor yesterday.

Prompted by widespread complaints from the agriculture industry, the senate urges congress to expand the federal guest worker program.

The capitol celebrates Georgia day – the anniversary of the European settlement of the colony of Georgia.

And it's the end of the legislative week, and a lot has happened. We are joined by our two resident legislative experts, Buddy Darden and Bill Crane.

You can watch Primetime Lawmakers every night the Georgia General Assembly is in session at 7pm on Georgia Public Broadcasting. The program re-airs the next morning at 5:30am.
