The Speaker is largely responsible for trauma funding failing.
State Sen. Eric Johnson says House Speaker Glenn Richardson pulled the plug on a plan to permanently pay for treating critically injured people.
The Senate president pro tem gave his post-mortem on potential legislation to fund trauma treatment Tuesday at Memorial University Medical Center.
Memorial has one of Georgia’s 15 trauma-care centers and one of the financially strapped network’s four Level 1 units.
The quest for a permanent solution “died on the operating table,” said Johnson, a Savannah Republican.
He didn’t get his not so GREAT plan so no one else got their big plans either.
It’s all so elementary school.
