Eyes on the Road: Green group says transit needs emphasis in new roads bill

City and county government officials statewide aren’t the only ones upset about the General Assembly’s proposed Transportation Funding Act of 2015. The Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club has called on lawmakers to make “substantial, ongoing funding for transit a centerpiece” of the bill, which has passed a state House committee and now is headed to a committee where House and Senate members can hash out differences. “Although sponsors have made some changes to the bill, it currently does not include a significant funding stream for mass transit or other alternatives to sitting in traffic,” states a Sierra Club news release.
