On this Sine Die edition of “Political Rewind,” our panel of insiders takes a look at what happened during the final frantic hours of the legislative session.
The topics discussed include:
The fate of the medical marijuana bill.
The last-minute passage of a measure to expedite the processing of rape kits.
The legislature’s refusal to amend the campus carry bill to conform with Governor Deal’s requested changes.
A surprise effort by staunch senate supporters of religious liberty to pass a bill that was a thinly-veiled proposal to punish corporations for their lobbying against the religious liberty bill.
The panel also looks at the new front in the battle between GOP candidates Ted Cruz and Donald Trump. They’re now fighting about their wives!
