As Georgia Lawmakers voted on dozens of bills this week, the majority of the bills passed focused on social issues rather than the economy. A focus analysts say comes as lawmakers face re-election this fall.
Lawmakers return to the state Capitol Monday for the 2012 legislative session. State legislators will spend 40 working days in session, and then later this year, all of them are up for election. And that’s likely to affect the tenor of this year’s legislative session.
