This Week in Washington, Georgia Edition - March 25, 2022

March 25, 2022

Winter is waning, and we’ve approached cherry blossom time. Congress will pretty much be focused on the midterm elections after July 31st, so Administration and Congressional leaders are feverishly putting together a list of legislative things that must get done – and can get done – in the next few months. Patrick Robertson’s Washington Whispers is an important guide to possible legislative activity. Ramona Lessen reviewed two hearings – Monday’s Senate Judiciary Hearing on the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to be an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, and Tuesday’s Senate Banking Housing and Urban Affairs Committee Hearing entitled “Building a Resilient Economy by Shoring up Supply”. Crossover Day in the Georgia Legislature has come and gone. Jesse Weathington gives us the latest in Georgia with his Gold Dome Report. Check out the Infographs for an in-depth look at current hot topics. A great number of industries were hurt during the pandemic, but the restaurant industry is at or near the top of the list. Congressman Erik Paulsen interviewed Dwayne Allen for Total Spectrum Spotlight. Mr. Allen is the Co-Founder and Owner of the Breadfruit and Rum Bar in Phoenix, AZ and he is a member of the Independent Restaurant Coalition. He describes the rewards and the challenges he and many other local restaurants are facing. It’s a great interview and we hope you’ll watch it.
