The Georgia General Assembly has concluded its 2014 session, allowing lawmakers to begin campaigning for re-election.

Lawmakers finished with a flurry of compromises on everything from medical marijuana and gun possession rights to an overhaul of Atlanta's MARTA transit system.

A bid for a widespread medical marijuana program fell short.

Churches, among other buildings, will now be able to allow gun permit holders to carry weapons if the establishments choose. Legislators stopped short of allowing concealed carry on college campuses.

Atlanta suburbs, meanwhile, will get more power over MARTA.

Earlier, lawmakers passed a $42.4 billion state operating budget.
