A combination of a medical marijuana bill and a bill that mandates insurance coverage for children's autism treatment goes before the Georgia Senate today.

It's called the Kid's Care Act.

A committee approved it unanimously last week.

The Senate's health and human services committee chairwoman, Renee Unterman says the bills were combined because of a lack of time left in this year's session..

Today is Day 39 of the legislative session and begins at 10 a.m., but the vote for the Kid's Care Act could happen anytime today.

The bill would have to pass the full senate, then make it back to the house for approval of the amended version by day 40 for it to pass this year.
