House Transportation Package Takes Promising Turn

House Bill 170 includes a number of provisions designed to generate additional revenues for improving Georgia’s gridlocked transportation system. The package that passed the Georgia House of Representatives on March 5, 2015 reforms Georgia’s gas tax, alters the way local governments apply sales taxes to motor fuel, creates new fees for alternative vehicles and eliminates state tax breaks for Delta Air Lines and electric car drivers. The revised edition of HB 170 is a significant upgrade over the plan lawmakers initially introduced, but it still has room to improve as it now moves to the state Senate. Download the bill analysis.
