ATLANTA, Ga.---The Georgia General Assembly is in the final day of its annual 40-day session. If the past is any indication, the legislators will be working right up to midnight.

Just about every major policy item Republican leaders promised to deliver on is up in the air.

The lawmakers must also decide the fate of the local bill that could lead to changes in the Augusta Coliseum Authority.

Longtime Atlanta Democrat Bob Holmes announced Friday he's retiring after 34 years in the Legislature.
