On Wednesday, Governor Nathan Deal gave the next to last State of the State address of his term. He’s running out of time in office, with only the 2017 and 2018 legislative sessions before his second consecutive four-year term ends.
There’s a lot left to do: an education overhaul, combating the opioid crisis, securing funds for a state court complex and more.
But Deal’s power to get those things done is waning said Charles Bullock, a University of Georgia political scientist. Bullock said the same thing happens to every governor.
