Georgia Voters to Vote Tuesday on Transportation Tax
Voters in and around Atlanta will vote Tuesday on a proposition to increase sales tax by a penny to raise $18 billion for transportation projects, the Associated Press reported.
The proposition would increase the sales tax for 10 years to fund 157 projects in 10 counties.
Metro Atlanta is one of a dozen regions in Georgia that will vote independently on the tax increase, AP said.
In 2010, Atlanta had the fourth-worst commute in the United States with drivers taking an average of 30-minutes to get to or from work, AP reported citing the 2010 U.S. census.
