Today on Political Rewind, Gov. Brian Kemp begins laying out his agenda for his first session of the General Assembly. Flexibility for using medicaid dollars, teacher raises and school safety are among his top priorities. We’ll look at the details of his plan as well as how democrats are responding. 

The government shutdown continues to send shockwaves through Georgia and across the country. Applications for unemployment benefits are spiking, and questions about possible disruptions to Atlanta’s careful planning for the Super Bowl are being raised.  And under the "Gold Dome", we discuss the ongoing controversy of how GOP leaders in the state Senate are dealing with issues of importance to women.
