At the annual Eggs and Issues Breakfast today, Governor Nathan Deal said water and education were two top priorities on his agenda.
Gov. Deal announced plans to create an education advisory group and has tasked the Georgia Emergency Management Agency with developing and launching a water supply task force.
Also, control of the senate continues to be an issue at the capitol. Today, a party-line vote in the senate made Sen. Tommie Williams chair of the committee on Administrative Affairs, but Lt. Governor Casey Cagle retained the power to appoint the majority of the panel. That will allow Cagle to negotiate the composition of the house and senate committee that will oversee redistricting this year.
Joining us onset to discuss capitol news is Buddy Darden, the attorney who represents Georgia in the “water wars,” and Bill Crane, a political analyst with CSI Crane.
You can watch prime time lawmakers every night the Georgia general assembly is in session at 7 pm.
