Let the 2012 General Assembly commence!

Posted By on Mon, Jan 9, 2012 at 9:24 AM

Hide your wallets and lock up your daughters and all that. In roughly 30 minutes, state lawmakers will take their seats in the Gold Dome and kick off the 40-day legislative session.

For a refresher on what you might expect this session, which is sure to include debates over criminal justice, tax reform, and transit, check out CL's legislative preview. The AJC also took a look at key issues.

Want a bio of some of the Capitol's most powerful senators, representatives, and lobbyists? Here you go. Want to spend the day at the Gold Dome? Here's a cheat sheet. Wondering where you can read all these ridiculous pieces of legislation lawmakers are proposing? Dive headfirst into the state's (kind of clunky) database.

If you follow state politics with the same zeal as other folks follow football, you'll be in heaven knowing that much of Gold Dome goings-on can be viewed online via livestream. Footage from other meetings is available along the left-hand menu when available. Be sure to also tune in to Georgia Public Broadcasting on TV or online tomorrow at 7 p.m. to view Gov. Nathan Deal deliver the State of the State address.
