Abolish the State Roadway and Toll Authority?

Now that is change I can believe in!

Apparently Georgia State Representative Bobby Franklin has introduced a bill, HB 18, which would eliminate the State Roadway and Toll Authority this summer. If you aren’t familiar with SRTA, it is the organization that recently extended the tolls on GA 400 to the chagrin of many North Fulton residents and elected officials.

I have no idea if this bill can pass in this session or if this would actually remove the tolls which were extended but it’s introduction is one of the first signs of sanity to come out of the gold dome this year.

You can read the bill here.
