Will The Legislature Deliver On Education Reform?

Mar 22, 2017

Today on “Political Rewind,” Georgians didn't approve Governor Deal's Opportunity School District measure last November, so what education reform bills will come out of the Gold Dome this session? The AJC's "Get Schooled" writer Maureen Downey joins us to take a look at some of the key efforts.

Also on the agenda today, it's D-Day tomorrow for Trumpcare, or Ryancare, or whatever you want to call it! Speaker Paul Ryan is pushing hard for this one, despite blowback from within his own party. At last night's RNCC fundraising dinner, the president went to bat for the bill while pushing other issues on his to-do list. Mr. Trump also mentioned that he recently discovered that Abraham Lincoln was a member of the GOP, an announcement that's drawing a fair amount of reaction.

And golly, as Neil Gorsuch undergoes the fine-toothed comb treatment on Capitol Hill, the SCOTUS nominee has caught our attention with his folksy style at the microphone.
