Legislative Day 10 - January 30, 2012

It’s the tenth legislative day of the 2012 session.

State departments come under greater scrutiny from the General Assembly as the Senate passes a bill allowing greater legislative oversight. Supporters say the budget process currently does not give the General Assembly enough control.

More students may become eligible for the HOPE Technical College Grant. Representative Stacey Carter filed legislation today to lower the GPA requirement from 3.0 to 2.5.

It’s Education Week Lawmakers, part of GPB’s ongoing effort to improve the graduation rate in the state. Tonight’s topic is The Top Ten Educational Issues for 2012. We are joined by Dr. Steve Dolinger of the Georgia Partnership for Excellence in Education.

Joining us for our reporter’s roundtable tonight, Kristina Torres and Jim Galloway, both of the Atlanta Journal Constitution, help put everything into perspective.

You can watch Prime Time Lawmakers every night the Georgia General Assembly is in session at 7pm on Georgia Public Broadcasting. The program re-airs the next morning at 5:30am.
