Political Rewind: No Funds for Rural Broadband, Home Regulations, Trump Abortion Law

Feb 26, 2019

On this edition of Political Rewind, plans to expand broadband to rural Georgia may be in jeopardy after legislators kill a bill that would pay for the project with a tax on video streaming services. Where will the funds to pay for the project come now?


Are you ready to live next door to a house painted purple with orange trim? It could happen if a bill preventing cities and counties from passing regulations that control the look and design of homes continues to move forward under the gold dome. Local officials call it a sweeping overreach by the state.

A little-noticed Trump administration rule released late last week will strip federal funding to organizations that offer poor women access to abortions in addition to family planning services.
