WHERE’S JOHNNY? ISAKSON SILENT IN AT LEAST 55% OF ENVIRONMENT AND PUBLIC WORKS COMMITTEE HEARINGS

Did he even bother showing up?

ATLANTA – While Senator Isakson was a member of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) committee, he was silent in at least 55% of his hearings. This is the third committee where he has missed over half of his committee hearings. Where’s Johnny?

Proudly claiming to be the first Georgian in recent history to serve on this committee, it is clear that Isakson has not taken this honor seriously. In December 2006, Isakson stated, “As our state continues to seek a resolution to the decades-old “water wars” with Florida and Alabama, I look forward to working on the Senate committee that oversees the Army Corps of Engineers.” But for someone who missed over half of the hearings, we can’t help but ask, where’s Johnny?

Last Tuesday, Jim Barksdale challenged Senator Isakson to debates about the economy in each of Georgia’s primary media markets (Albany, Atlanta, Augusta, Columbus, Macon and Savannah).

With multiple public polls showing that Barksdale is within single digits, will Senator Isakson tell Georgians why he was silent?

Senator Isakson has been a member of several committees during his Senate tenure:

  • Commerce, Science, and Transportation: 111th - 112th Congress
  • Ethics: 110th - 114th Congress
  • Environment and Public Works: 109th - 110th Congress
  • Finance: 113th – 114th Congress
  • Foreign Relations: 110th - 112th, and 114th Congress
  • Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP): 109th - 114th Congress
  • Small Business and Entrepreneurship: 109th - 111th Congress
  • Veterans: 109th - 114th Congress
