Tom Price Addresses Charter Flights Controversy

Sep 29, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” Tom Price goes public about the controversy over his travel on chartered aircraft even as new reports indicate the total of his trips is over $1 million. Is he correct that President Trump is on his side as he tries to make amends?

In state news, Macon representative Allen Peake says he’ll once again introduce legislation permitting limited production of cannabis oil in Georgia. What chance does he have of success in the upcoming session? And will he run afoul of the anti-marijuana U.S. attorney general Jeff Sessions?

Governor Deal and state school superintendent Richard Woods butt heads over the plan to measure school success in Georgia.

Plus: a new poll finds that a majority of U.S voters think Trump is unfit to be president. Could his push for a major tax overhaul bill turn around his negative image?
