House Speaker says Georgia Legislature to Reconvene June 11
Georgia House Speaker David Ralston says that the legislative session paused in March because of the coronavirus will resume on June 11, with some new policies and procedures in place. Ralston said in a memo Monday that staff would begin transitioning back to offices on June 1, with in-person committee meetings set to resume June 2.
A report outlines procedures to be implemented before members return. The report says that people will have their temperature checked at the door and spaces will be “fogged” daily to protect against the virus. A spokesman for Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan said the Senate hasn’t agreed to the start date.
