The Senate Transportation Committee took up legislation Monday that would allow multicounty regions to levy themselves a 1-cent sales tax for transportation projects in their regions.
If passed, the legislation would open the door for projects including roads, rail mass transit or perhaps even intercity high-speed rail, said Sen. Jeff Mullis (R-Chickamauga), chairman of the committee.
SB39 and SR44, if passed by the General Assembly, would still need a constitutional amendment to be enacted. That amendment would have to be approved by Georgia voters.
