PSC Moves Plant Vogtle Construction Funding Forward, With Conditions

Dec 22, 2017

On this edition of Political Rewind, Georgians will continue to pay for an expansion of the Plant Vogtle nuclear power facility, thanks to a ruling by the Public Service Commission. Our panel will weigh in on how much we’ll pay and look at why the decision has sparked controversy. Plus, state legislators are considering a new tax on phones, television subscriptions and streaming services like Netflix. We’ll discuss the reasons. And, the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. issues a blunt threat to countries that voted to condemn President Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

Panelists:

AJC Political Reporter Jim Galloway

Former Georgia Representative Buddy Darden

Georgia Republican Party Director of Minority Engagement Leo Smith
