All Politics Are Local

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) –  Each week, News 3 is taking the time to break down the local impacts of news coming from Washington D.C. and Atlanta.

WSAV Washington Correspondent Kellie Meyer joins NOW Reporter Jon Dowding to discuss the latest developments in COVID-19 relief from the Capitol.

President Trump announced a set of Executive Orders that would extend unemployment benefits to Americans who qualify.

Experts, however, are questioning whether the president has the constitutional authority to do so.

Schools have also begun to reopen across the country and we hear from local lawmakers about what steps can be taken in Washington to help the schools.

Also, the two discuss when we may learn who former Vice President Joe Biden selects as his vice presidential pick ahead of this year’s Democratic National Convention.
