Senate rolls out its own version of transportation

tax bill

By Tom Crawford / March 17, 2015

The Georgia Senate unveiled its version of the transportation funding bill (HB 170) Tuesday and, as expected, it differs significantly from the one that passed the House of Representatives.
The Senate version calls for the Legislature to allocate $250 million from the general budget each year for the state Department of Transportation (DOT) to use to pay debt service – thus freeing up $250 million in motor fuel tax revenues that DOT could spend on highway construction.
The Senate bill rolls all of the current motor fuel taxes into a single excise tax on gasoline of 24 cents per gallon – which is less than the 29.2 cents per gallon proposed in the House version.
The bill would impose a daily fee of $5 on each rental car that is leased in the state.
