Political Rewind: More Questions Than Answers During Final Days of State Legislature

Apr 1, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, there is just one day left in the legislative session to resolve some big questions.


Will the state move to wrest control of Hartsfield-Jackson airport from the City of Atlanta and what role does race play in that effort?

 

Will families authorized to use cannabis oil to treat a variety of medical conditions soon be able to buy the product legally in Georgia? And how many dispensaries and growing locations will legislators authorize?

 

How long will Gwinnett County residents wait for a new opportunity to expand MARTA into their communities? And why are GOP legislators calling for a delay of seven years or more?

 

Plus, there’s been a strong reaction from around the country to the just-passed heartbeat measure that all but outlaws abortion in Georgia.
