Governor Brian Kemp has signed more than 20 house bills  ahead of the Georgia General Assembly’s adjournment sine die. The remaining bills to be signed or vetoed must be within 40 days of review. The current legislative sesion ended on April 2, with the most recent bills signed on April 3.

The bills left to be reviewed by Kemp must be signed, vetoed, or “have no action taken, allowing it to become law” within those 40 days. May 12 will mark the end of the review period, leaving any bills or resolutions not signed or vetoed as law due to inaction.

Of the bills and resolutions going to the governor’s desk from the recent legislative session, the majority are from the House of Representatives. The bills that have been signed already are “House Bills 21, 50, 51, 52, 54, 217, 284, 285, 304, 306, 316, 559, 574, 590, 597, 601, 602, 603, 607, 622, and 632,” according to the Governor’s office.
