State Sen. Butch Miller, R-Gainesville, was named Wednesday to a new transit task force formed by Gov. Nathan Deal.
Deal created the Transit Governance Task Force to develop a proposal for the 2012 session of the General Assembly based on the findings of the Transit Governance Study Commission.
"The metro Atlanta region has a multitude of transit agencies that work independently of each other," Deal said. "The study committee found that commuters, transit stakeholders and the general public would benefit from oversight, streamlining and coordination of the individual transit systems in the metro Atlanta region."
