We decided to approach our first issue since the August break by using Heard on the Hill to provide an overview of the major and controversial items that are on the legislative agenda. Jesse Weathington gives us the latest in Georgia with his Gold Dome Report.
The most significant event on this month’s calendar was the 20th anniversary of the 9-11 attack. Steve Gordon assembled three of the Total Spectrum team members – Todd Smith, Steve Ruhlen, and Ramona Lessen – and talked about the experiences and reactions of that day. Todd was in the House of Representatives, Ramona was in the Senate, Steve Ruhlen was in the White House, and Steve was a political consultant working in his office two blocks from the Senate. Each of us had different experiences but our reactions were quite similar. It was a great conversation, and we hope you enjoy reading it.
This fall may prove to be a busy one in Washington, and we’ll do our best to keep you up to date. We thank you as always for reading and welcome your thoughts and suggestions.
