The transportation sales tax vote is still months away, but it is likely voters will have plenty of opportunities to ask questions before July 31.
Fundamentally, voters will have to determine whether it’s worth it to them to levy a penny sales tax – for ten years – to fast-track transportation infrastructure investment.
Complicating matters, the Georgia General Assembly may not be able to pass transit governance legislation that will help voters understand how these new investments will be managed.
Last week the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that proposed transit governance legislation has rankled some because of its intent to change representation guidelines by granting more influence to north Metro Atlanta.
