Day 1: 2024 General Assembly Convenes



2024 Kick Off

The Georgia House and Senate kicked off the 2024 legislative session by convening briefly for Legislative Day 1. Capitol watchers await passage of an adjournment resolution, which will set the pace and schedule for the remainder of the session.

 

PAGE is excited to welcome Legislative Communications Specialist Robert Aycock to the team, joining Director of Legislative Services Margaret Ciccarelli and Legislative Services Specialist Josh Stephens.
