Georgia 2017 Legislative Session Preview

Jan 9, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” we preview the 2017 session of the Georgia General Assembly. As the lawmakers gavel in for the first of 40 days, we look at some new polling from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. It suggests that the majority of Georgia voters oppose renewed efforts to pass religious liberty and campus carry bills, but their support for Medicaid expansion is strong, even among GOP respondents. Other topics include an update on the Trump transition, and the latest round in the culture wars as award-winning actress Meryl Streep turns an acceptance speech at the Golden Globes into a shot across the bow at the incoming U.S. President.   

Panelists:

Jim Galloway - Political writer, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Buddy Darden - Former U.S. Representative 7th District

Lori Geary - Political analyst

Todd Rehm - GOP political strategist and editor of Georgia Pundit
