*Georgia’s Transportation Bill – The new transportation legislation will bring in about $1 billion a year for transportation needs across Georgia with analysts saying that is the minimum needed to start bringing the infrastructure network up to level; but not enough to fund large scale high improvements, build new rail lines or raise funds for mass transit
• The new revenue will be used primarily for repaving roads; filling potholes and shoring up bridges. Some money could be left for new construction and the DOT will have more flexibility in how it manages its programs
• Your taxes will go up about .06 per gall and there will be a new $5.00 per night fee added to hotel stays
• The legislation also includes a feature that allows counties, either alone or in groups, to ask voters to approve up to a 1% sales tax hike for projects closer to home without first going through the Legislature.
