What Passed, What Failed In The 2018 Legislative Session

Mar 30, 2018

On this edition of Political Rewind, the 2018 session of the Georgia General Assembly was gaveled to a close late last night.  What did lawmakers do about measures to crack down on distracted driving, to expand transit across metro Atlanta, or to boost the chances for economic growth in rural Georgia?  We’ll look at these and other accomplishments under the “Gold Dome” this year.  Then, with the session now finished, the sprint to the May primary elections is now under way.  We’ll look at where the top races stand right now.  Plus, the City of Atlanta has been paralyzed by one of the biggest hacking attacks ever launched against a government body.  How did it happen and how will it be fixed?
