Georgia Budget

Thursday on Political Rewind, the Georgia House voted yesterday on a midyear budget differing significantly from the proposal submitted by Gov. Brian Kemp.

The altered budget, passed by a 126-to-46 vote, maintains funding for services that state representatives deemed too important to cut, including funds for food inspectors in the Department of Agriculture, accountability courts and mental health services.

What do we see happening next in this budget battle?


On this edition of Political Rewind, legislators have just one day left in the 2018 session and a number of key bills remain unresolved.  We’ll look at where the measures that have attracted public interest stand and at some of the sleepers that could have an impact on our lives.  Then, for the first time since he became governor, Nathan Deal says the state coffers have enough cash to fully fund schools across the state and his budget includes the money to do it.
