The Florida Times Union of Sunday, July 22, published a letter to the editor from Foundation President and CEO Kelly McCutchen in response to an article that quoted McCutchen on the upcoming regional transportation sales tax referendum:

Expanding on stance

The recent article “Brunswick business groups back 1 cent hike in sales tax” did not fully reflect the Georgia Public Policy Foundation’s views.

While we were quoted on the drawbacks of using the sales tax to fund  transportation improvements, our statements on the political and policy  challenges of alternatives such as higher gas taxes or new tolls were  excluded.

While we have commented on the Metro Atlanta project list, we have not  commented on the Region 12 project list in Southeast Georgia, so it is  inaccurate to say we disagree with these projects.
