0

Many lawmakers dressed in red and black in honor of the Georgia Bulldogs who competed against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Everyone was in for the excitement of the game The House and Senate had to go about their normal business on the first day.

Georgia House Democratic Minority Leader James Beverly says he hopes for sensitivity in the next 40 days.

« The Democrats in the House will certainly speak of gun control with common sense, ”he said. « We will definitely be talking about the election, the local redistribution. »

MP Dale Washburn said his focus at this session is on mental health funding as well as rural health funding. He also says there is a budget surplus.

« So if there is an opportunity to cut taxes, we are always interested in lowering taxes for our citizens, » he said. « So we look forward to a productive meeting. »

MEP Miriam Paris said the Committee on Budgets will meet next week and will set the tone for the rest of the session. She says she is focused on expanding Medicaid because the cost of health care is a financial burden for many Georgians.

« The main reason they go bankrupt is because their medical bills are getting out of hand, » she said. « So if we could get some relief just from a medical standpoint, I think that would be a great thing. » Senator John Kennedy says they’ll be giving Senate priorities out later this week. These include computer privacy, the Safe Communities Act and the Critical Race Theory.

He also announced that the redistribution cards from the special session went into effect earlier this year. He says there are two lawsuits regarding the cards, but he hopes they have no effect.

« The cards we have are very good, very fair, very legal cards, » he said. « It’s going to go through the courts somehow now and we’ll follow up to see how it goes on. »
