Falling Gas Tax Revenue Forces Georgia, U.S. to Plan Ahead - AJC / March 25, 2014

In Georgia and Washington, D.C., serious conversations are taking place about transportation - in particular, how the critical infrastructure projects that manage traffic, ensure safety and protect our economy will be funded in the future.
While Georgia's population and congestion continue to grow, transportation funding from current sources steadily declines. At the same time, the solvency of the Federal Highway Trust Fund is at risk, as is the reauthorization of a long-term federal highway bill - both of which have a direct and significant impact on our state funding strategy.

BILL REVISES REGIONAL TRANSPORTATION STRATEGY

Jan. 22, 2014 / (AJC)

Since voters in metro Atlanta and eight other regions of the state rejected T-SPLOST referendums in summer 2012, politicians have been loathed to raise the issue again.
However, a bill pending this year seeks to revive a smaller, more flexible version of the plan that allows residents to vote on taxing themselves to fund a way out of traffic congestion. (The 2012 metro Atlanta vote involved a penny sales tax for a 10-county region.)
It’s unclear if the legislation will gain any traction in an election year that is expected to result in an unusually swift 2014 General Assembly session. Still, the idea of smaller T-SPLOSTs already has supporters such as Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed and Cobb County Chairman Tim Lee, and could turn around some opponents of the 2012 vote.
