Budget, ethics legislation approved on session’s final day

The 2013 session of the Georgia General Assembly came to an end at midnight March 28, with the House of Representatives and the Senate reaching final agreement on a $19.9 billion state budget for fiscal year 2014, as well as landmark ethics legislation.
