Day 28 of the legislative session was crossover day in the session. What does crossover day mean? Crossover day is the last day for legislation to pass the chamber in which it was introduced and transfer to the other chamber for consideration. Senate bills must pass the Senate and House bills must pass the House. Any bill that does not receive a vote in its initial chamber by Day 28 cannot move on in the legislative process until the next legislative session. As a reminder, this is the first session of a 2-year legislative cycle. In rare instances, a bill may be attached to another piece of legislation from the same Code section that was crossed over by the required time frame; however, this brings into play a process by which the bill must be reviewed and approved by both chambers. While this is rare, CBA will continue to monitor bills throughout the remainder of the session to make sure no controversial topics are introduced or added to other bills that would adversely impact community banks.
