AJC’s Kyle Wingfield Cites Foundation in Transportation Column

May 2nd, 2013 by Leave a Comment

Columnist Kyle Wingfield of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution cited the Georgia Public Policy Foundation in his May 2, 2013, column on a regional approach to transportation:

“[T]he state could change the law to allow individual counties to use a different special local-option sales tax, for instance the E-SPLOST, for multiple purposes including transportation. As the Georgia Public Policy Foundation has reported, Georgia ranks eighth nationally in k-12 infrastructure spending and 22nd for all infrastructure — but just 41st in transportation infrastructure. It just might be time for counties to re-prioritize their existing spending, which could include working jointly with other counties on road or transit projects.”

The Foundation’s Criminal Justice Initiative pushed the problems to the forefront, proposed practical solutions, brought in leaders from other states to share examples, and created this nonpartisan opportunity. (At the signing of the 2012 Criminal Justice Reform bill.)
