Political Rewind: Georgia Legislative Panels Examine Major Health Concerns

Sep 16, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, Georgia legislative panels will meet this week to examine two major health concerns: improving mental and developmental outcomes for young children and addressing the high maternal death rate in Georgia. Our panel discusses how we can expect the legislature to deal with these issues.


Also, some credit rating agencies praise Gov. Brian Kemp for cutting the state budget in anticipation of a slow down in the economy. Do State House leaders fully support his dramatic cuts?

Plus, Georgia Democrats are actively pushing to host a presidential debate in Atlanta and former Vice President Joe Biden speaks out on hatred and bigotry at a speech at Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church.

Panelists:

Jim Galloway - AJC Lead Political Writer

Wendy Davis - Rome City Commissioner

Katie Dempsey- State Represenatives (R-Rome)
