Tax cuts, racial education and elections among big pending issues

The grand finale of this year’s legislative session Monday will bring a frenzy of votes on some of Georgia’s most hotly debated issues.

Here’s a look at some of the bills that could receive final votes in the Republican-controlled General Assembly — or die until next year:

Tax cut: Legislators are haggling over how much to slash the state’s 5.75% income tax rate. Proposed tax rates range from 4.99% to 5.25%.

Race in schools: A bill to restrict discussions about race in schools is pending a final vote.

Elections: Proposals for GBI election fraud investigations and public inspections of paper ballots could be revived.

Abortion pill: Pregnant women could be required to see a doctor before being able to obtain the abortion pill.

Gambling: Voters would decide whether to allow sports betting if legislators back a referendum.

Medical marijuana: Lawmakers are trying to jump-start a program to distribute medical marijuana oil to registered patients.
