Political Rewind: What Confirmation Of Judge Amy Coney Barrett Could Mean For Georgia
Wednesday on Political Rewind: As the Senate Judiciary committee prepares to vote on the confirmation of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court, our panel of experts takes a look at how she could help shape rulings that may have a big impact here in Georgia.
Will she vote to overturn the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act — a case in which Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr is a litigant?
And if Roe v. Wade comes before the court, will a ban on abortions in Georgia be one of a number of anti-abortion state laws the court may uphold with the support of a Justice Barrett?
Our panel of legal experts will weigh in on these key questions, as well as the intention and meaning behind some of our country's democratic institutions.
