Legislative Day 16 - February 7 2012

This is the 16th legislative day of the 2012 session.

On tonight’s program, surprising many at the Capitol, changes are made to the State Charter Schools Bill before it passes a House Committee. Democrats respond with their own Constitutional Amendment.

Legislation that all but eliminates the State Aviation Authority clears the Senate. The bill’s sponsor says it’s part of reducing the size government.

Some say a transportation tax is the solution to Georgia’s transportation problems. We talk T-SPLOST with Bert Brantley from the Citizens for Transportation Mobility and Debbie Dooley of the Atlanta Tea Party.

We continue our in-depth analysis of Capitol news with our good friends, Tom Crawford of the Georgia Report, and Jim Galloway, the political insider of the Atlanta-Journal Constitution. They’ll help us put everything into perspective.

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