The bill aims to “help accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy and reduce greenhouse gases,” Ossoff’s office said of the legislation, which expands solar tax credits to cover an integrated solar roofing system and roof replacements and repairs necessary for solar panel installations.

September 9, 2021 8:37 PM Log in to Reply armanidog Georgia Democrats are retooling for the 2022 campaign. The party’s executive director, credited alongside chairwoman Nikema Williams for leading the organization’s 2020 strategy, is transitioning out of the role. Scott Hogan will stay on as a senior adviser and help pick his successor. https://www.ajc.com/politics/politics-blog/the-jolt-georgia-democrats-top-executive-plans-to-step-down/4I3EQFSQAJCXTFNXVT5WMT6HY4/ Hogan, a veteran of the Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton campaigns, was hired in June 2019 after running statewide campaigns in South Carolina and Utah in the previous cycle. Though he was a constant presence on the campaign trail, Hogan preferred the behind-the-scenes role leading the party’s fundraising strategy, helping to develop messaging and allocating resources during the epic 2020 election. He’ll depart as the executive director who helmed the Democratic party during a campaign that resulted in Georgia flipping blue in a presidential race for the first time since 1992 and then Democratic sweeps in the U.S. Senate runoffs. “There are several heroines & heroes in GA who literally saved our Democracy. @hoganscott18 is in the top tier of that list,” said Jaime Harrison, the chair of the Democratic National Committee. It was one of several personnel moves by the party. Krystal Spencer was hired as a deputy organizing director, Rebecca Galanti promoted to Communications Director and James Jelin named the Digital Director.

Get the dang vaccine, how stupid do you have to be to avoid a free precaution against going to the hospital?

And sweating. “Anthony Michael Kreis, a Georgia State University constitutional law professor, said there’s “not a thing Georgia can do to thwart” the federal vaccine requirements unless the state seeks to undercut workplace rights established by a 1941 U.S. Supreme Court ruling. He called Kemp’s threat “pure political puffery.” “If the governor is truly sincere in his statement that he thinks there’s something unlawful in this, he’ll have to answer what other federal workplace safety regulations are unlawful,” the professor said. “Should we permit society to go back to a time where people were losing limbs to unsafe, unregulated workplace practices,” Kreis said, “or do we adhere to a long-standing social contract of workplace rights?” https://www.ajc.com/politics/politics-blog/georgia-governor-threatens-to-sue-to-block-bidens-new-vaccine-mandates/NKWLQLHJIZBSNKUWMP3CI5OB5E/ September 9, 2021 8:56 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
