Explaining the Regional Transportation SPLOST
News

Wednesday on Eyewitness News Mornin', 13WMAZ's Randall Savage talked to Georgia State Senator Cecil Staton about what would have to happen for an eleven county Central Georgia region to collect a regional transportation tax.

If approved, Staton says it could generate more than $748 million to fund transportation projects in the Middle Georgia Regional Commission's 11 counties.

Those counties include Bibb, Houston, Baldwin, Crawford, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Putnam, Pulaski, Twiggs, and Wilkinson.

Staton says collection would begin on Jan. 1, 2013.

Voters will decide on the issue July 31.
