So, the penny transportation local option sales tax (TLOST) has passed the State Senate overwhelmingly, still moving through the House. What I like about it is the optional part.  It certainly does not presume the needs of a particular region, and funds generated there (disproportionately from tourists here in the coast) go to transportation projects we decide on.

I am pleased to see that the group which has been the primary impetus behind TLOST, Get Georgia Moving, has alternative modes (transit and the Beltline in Atlanta) as a part of its recommendations. Now we need to demand inclusion of a provision on Complete Streets.
