93| Georgia's Political Pulse: Behind the Scenes of Legislation w/ Angela Jetty
Welcome to "Where the Party At?!", hosted by Saba Long. In this episode, Angela Jetty joins us to delve into the intricacies of Georgia's legislative session. It's essential to remember key dates: Georgia's legislative session lasts 40 days, with Crossover Day (Feb 29) being the last day for bills to pass either the House or Senate to move forward this session, and Sine Die (March 28) marking the final day for bills to go to the Governor's desk. Understanding the legislative process is crucial, as bills go through three readings, committees, and calendars.https://www.legis.ga.gov/Join Angela Letty and Saba Long as they navigate Georgia's legislative process, empowering you to engage effectively with your legislators. Stay tuned for more insights into Atlanta's politics, and be sure to subscribe and share "Where the Party At?!" to keep up with the latest in local governance. Your voice matters in shaping the future of your community.**CIVICS 101**Understanding the Legislative Process:The legislative process involves bills passing through readings, committees, and calendars. Bills are first filed and read on the House/Senate floor before being assigned to a committee. The second reading in the House is largely ceremonial, whereas in the Senate, it occurs after the bill passes out of committee. The third reading opens the bill for debate, and rules and calendars determine which bills proceed. Committees are where bills are discussed, reviewed, and debated, with various stakeholders participating. Bills that pass out of committee go back to their respective legislative chambers with three options: "do pass," "do pass with amendments," or "do pass by substitute." If a bill doesn't pass the committee, it receives an unfavorable report.Engaging with Legislators:Engaging with legislators is essential for civic participation. Use the General Assembly website to find your State Representative/State Senator. The website provides their contact information, allowing you to reach out via phone, email, or by visiting their Capitol or CLOB offices. You can also watch House and Senate sessions online or from the gallery on the fourth floor. If you want to meet your legislators in person, wait outside the ropes on the third floor for an opportunity to discuss important issues.WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
