Political Rewind: Making Ends Meet For State In Crisis

May 6, 2020

The continuing cost of the state response, in addition to a loss of revenue and economic activity, has led Gov. Brian Kemp to last week call for significant cuts to all state agencies. 


And during a visit to Albany, Kemp warned that the Gainesville area could potentially be a new hot spot because 400 poultry workers there have tested positive for COVID-19.
