Under the current administration Columbus has not been a priority in the State Transportation Plan. In my activist pursuits I have been engaged with State Leaders in changing our role in the current transportation process. The change in most statewide seats gives our region a new opportunity. Currently the 4% motor fuel tax is not dedicated to transportation, it goes to fund pork projects through the General Fund. I will introduce legislation to dedicate those funds solely to transportation projects. The last major improvements to Georgia's transportation infrastructure was in the late 60's and early 70's. I will be a leading voice in making transportation a priority for Georgia and ensure the Lower Chattahoochee's role in the decision making process.
