Political Rewind: Kemp Signs Patients First Act

Mar 27, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, Gov. Kemp has signed into law his signature issue of the 2019 legislative session. Kemp now has the power to set the course for expansion of Medicaid and to determine possible subsidies for Georgians who buy insurance through Obamacare. We look at the political implications for Kemp’s victory.

 


We continue to wait for the state house to take the final vote that could send the controversial fetal heartbeat bill to the Governor. Will some legislators be swayed by the last-minute opposition to the bill from one of Georgia's most influential pro-life organizations?

 

And what’s happening with the measure that would allow for the production of medical marijuana oil in Georgia?
