Political Rewind: Speaker David Ralston Previews the 2019 Legislative Session

Jan 9, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, House of Representatives Speaker David Ralston joins us just days before he gavels in the 2019 Session.

 

 


What will be the top headlines that are likely to emerge from the annual 40-day meeting of lawmakers? Will Medicaid expansion be on the table? How will a campaign promise to give teachers a raise fit into the proposed budget? And will we see a renewed effort to pass a religious liberty bill?

 

With a new governor coming into office, we discuss how the legislature will work with Brian Kemp. What areas of his agenda will receive full party support and where might we see some push back?

 

Panelists:

 

David Ralston -- Speaker of the House of Representatives

 

Jim Galloway -- Lead Political Writer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
