The Georgia General Assembly is the state legislature of the U.S. state of Georgia. It is bicameral, being composed of the Georgia House of Representatives and the Georgia Senate.
Each of the 236 members of the General Assembly serve for two year terms and are directly elected by their districts. The Georgia State Constitution vests all legislative power with the General Assembly. Both houses have similar powers, though each also has unique duties. For instance, the origination of appropriation bills occurs only in the House and the Senate is tasked with confirmation of the Governor's appointments.
The General Assembly meets in the Georgia State Capitol in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Our assembly being now formed not by ourselves but by the goodwill and sprightly imagination of our readers, we have nothing to do but to draw up the curtain ... and to discover our chief personage on the stage.”
—Sarah Fielding (17101768)
“Being a Georgia author is a rather specious dignity, on the same order as, for the pig, being a Talmadge ham.”
—Flannery OConnor (19251964)
“The conclusion suggested by these arguments might be called the paradox of theorizing. It asserts that if the terms and the general principles of a scientific theory serve their purpose, i. e., if they establish the definite connections among observable phenomena, then they can be dispensed with since any chain of laws and interpretive statements establishing such a connection should then be replaceable by a law which directly links observational antecedents to observational consequents.”
—C.G. (Carl Gustav)
