In this episode of the Politically Georgia podcast, host Greg Bluestein and AJC statehouse veteran James Salzer discuss: the budget, how the 2020 legislative session has gotten off track and the situation between House Speaker David Ralston and Gov. Brian Kemp.

Producer note from Bria Felicien: Host Greg Bluestein doesn’t sound as crisp as he does in other episodes of Politically Georgia due to a technical issue on my end, but ultimately you can hear him just fine. I just wanted to give a heads up before you dove into the episode.
