Albany-- State lawmakers wrapped up what some of them call a bizarre General Assembly session late Friday night but their work isn't done.
They'll have to head back to Atlanta for a special session for a minimum of five days after Governor Sonny Perdue vetoed the mid-year budget plan that included a big one-time tax cut for property owners.
Senator Michael Meyer Von Bremen supports a tax cut but admits it had some kinks. He says the session could have been more productive but he is proud of some accomplishments including protecting Jekyll Island and increasing benefits to the PeachCare program.
Meyer Von Bremen is disappointed a plan to put extra weight back into public school honors programs didn't reach the Senate in time.
"Those poor kids, a couple of 100 of them are going to wonder why they were asked to take harder courses and now they're being punished for it. I'm very disappointed that that took place," said Meyer Von Bremen.
He's also disappointed a request of more than 8 million dollars for Albany Tech's new building did not survive the conference committee. He'll push to get some of the money included in the supplemental budget during the special session which has not yet been scheduled.
