Local officials strongly oppose Transportation Funding Act

Legislation to help pay for road, bridge and other transportation needs currently under review by the state House of Representatives is drawing fire from municipal and county governments across the state, including here in Telfair.
The Transportation Funding Act of 2015, House Bill 170, is an effort to bridge the approximately one billion dollar annual transportation funding gap. Studies have shown the State of Georgia needs at least that much in additional spending to maintain transportation infrastructure like roads, bridges and mass transit.
