I think Steve Williams’ blog,The Georgia Road Geek Blog Site is an excellent resource for getting to know the issues and events in regard to Georgia’s roadways. He posted a very well written article on the State Road and Tollway Authority with respect to House Bill 18 as follows:
If House Bill 18 were to become law, then Georgia Code Section 40-6-54(d) would be would be altered by removing any and all references to SRTA and substituting “Department of Transportation” wherever necessary (per Section 20 of the bill).
As for the SRTA, I can honestly say that I don’t have a single ounce of sympathy for their governing board, given that they, then-Governor Sonny Perdue, and the GDOT board had the audacity to break a promise made to us, the Georgia taxpayers, by extending the GA 400 tolls for another ten (10) years. In other words, good riddance to bad rubbish!
I want to thank him for helping to spread the word about House Bill 18. Please look up your state legislators at congress.org so that you may call or write them in support of House Bill 18.
