Lawmakers Brief: Conversation with Senate Minority Leader Gloria Butler
Senate Minority Leader Gloria Butler sat down with GPB Lawmakers host Donna Lowry about some of the major issues under consideration at the state Capitol.
Butler spoke about her wishlist for this legislative session, which includes Medicaid expansion for all, fully funded public education and vaccinations for everyone.
The Democratic state senator is a strong supporter of no-excuse absentee voting and said that it worked well in Georgia “for 16 years.”
She also criticized Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan for not voting on Senate Bill 24, which deals with elections and voting. Butler said said that one needs “ to have the courage to vote the way you feel about the bills.”
