Rep. Charles Booker, End of Session Wrap Up, & Overturning Medicaid Waiver

April 3, 2019

This week, we welcomed Rep. Charles Booker back onto the podcast.  Rep. Booker joined us several months ago when he was running for office -- since joining the legislature, he's jumped in head first, sponsoring 50 bills and serving as the chief sponsor on 15.  We talked to him about how he approached the session, and how he is serving as a representative of a community that is often overlooked in Frankfort.

Before our conversation with Rep. Booker, we talked through the last day of the session -- what managed to pass, and what was left undone.  Jazmin talked specifically about the pension changes for "quasi" governmental organizations and some appointments to the board of education.  Also last week, Judge Boasberg overturned the Bevin administration's Medicaid Waiver.
