A MARTA expansion bill that passed the Georgia Legislature late Thursday night sets the stage for Atlanta voters to direct tax money to the agency.
It would also allow the rest of Fulton County to direct a three-quarters of a penny sales tax to transportation projects, which could include transit.
County Commission Chairman John Eaves said he's “ecstatic” the Legislature passed the bill.
“There are a lot of bridges in the county that have not been renovated, resurfaced, etc. over the past many years,” Eaves said.
