LEGISLATIVE & ADVOCACY NEWS
After a week of virtual budget committee hearings, the 2021 Georgia General Assembly resumed. Work is proceeding quickly, and the House passed the amended FY21 budget on Thursday morning. Now, the Georgia Senate will start its review work. At this point, there is no formal talk of shortening the session, which runs for 40 days. Not every day is a "session" day however, as there are holidays, hearing days, etc. that typically result in the session extending until late March/April.
Thirteen Metro Atlanta superintendents, including Mr. Ragsdale, sent a letter to Gov. Kemp requesting that teachers and education staff be included in the 1A category, in order to get the COVID vaccine. Kemp's office has responded that the vaccine supply issue will not allow for that re-ordering of priority groups.
