Key Bills Unresolved As State Legislative Session Winds Down

Mar 28, 2018

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.   What will this mean to educators?  Plus, a Trump administration plan to include a question about citizenship in the 2020 census is causing an uproar in some quarters.  Critics say it could affect federal funding to many urban areas and have an impact on reapportionment.  Supporters say it‘s an important question to ask.
