The Clippings: Gov. Deal says no new T-SPLOST | 11alive.com
The governor said he will now personally take charge of the state’s future transportation projects through “traditional” means such as the state DOT.
But he warned there will be less money, especially since a new Federal transportation bill will mean an 8 percent cut for Georgia, about $700 million less.
“We’re gonna have to sharpen our pencils,” he said for what will have to be a smaller list of projects.
Instead of regional “roundtables” of local politicians picking projects, Deal said a much smaller group of state officials will make any future lists.
“I see no sense in re-visiting an issue that the public has rather resoundingly rejected,” he said about another T-SPLOST.
