Transportation Talk

Last week, the makings of a legislative plan emerged to generate about $1 billion annually in new cash for transportation projects in Georgia, with $100 million for transit, for good measure. One House leader says the plan will finally thrust Georgia into this century without raising state taxes, and the range of reactions has spanned from "Finally!" to "You dirty rats!" Renew ATL calls the transportation plan "a complicated scheme," which aligns with the AJC's Jay Bookman's description: "legislative sleight-of-hand." For an alternate viewpoint, the AJC's conservative columnist, Kyle Wingfield, is more laudatory with his column titled, "What the plan got right."
