July 9, 2024

Thousands of people have applied for the City of Atlanta’s e-Bike Rebate Program. The first round of rebates is scheduled to go out on July 15th. Roz Tucker with the Atlanta Regional Commission shares demographic data and more about the people who are taking advantage of the rebates. Michelle Dunbar, the owner of Clutch Bicycle Shop, also joins us to give the perspective of a shop owner, to discuss the e-bike boom, and how this program will work.

However, the future of the swamp could have huge implications for water law throughout the eastern United States. Marisa Mecke talks about her latest feature: With mine permits on the horizon, feds fight for water rights at the Okefenokee Swamp.
