Ga. Legislature to return to work at Capitol

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia lawmakers will be back at the state Capitol for Day 7 of their 40-day legislative session.

Bills are expected to slowly begin working their way through committees, including sweeping immigration legislation and a measure that would allow local governments to ask voters to approve the Sunday sale of alcohol at grocery and convenience stores.

The House on Monday is expected to effectively kill a veto override approved unanimously in the state Senate last week. The Senate voted to override a veto issued by Gov. Sonny Perdue of 0-based budgeting. But House Speaker David Ralston says the House would assign that veto override to committee and instead take up its own budget reform measure.
