Ga. legislative session set to end April 14

ATLANTA (AP) - The Georgia Legislature will wrap up the 2011 legislative session on April 14.

The House and Senate on Tuesday adopted a resolution setting the calendar for the remainder of the 40-day session.

Lawmakers are set to meet all five days next week. They will take off April 4-8, which coincides with many school district spring breaks as well as the Masters Tournament in Augusta.

They will hold the final two days April 12 and 14.

The General Assembly must still approve a budget for the 2012 fiscal year and could complete action on immigration measures and a bill permitting Sunday alcohol sales.

Last year's session was 1 of the longest on record, stretching more than three months and ending April 30.
