Georgia lawmakers pass a measure that would help fund trauma centers in the state.

SR 277 would create a $10 fee on auto license tags to go toward a trauma care trust fund.

They estimate the fee would bring in around 80-million-dollars each year.

None of Georgia's 15 trauma centers are south of Macon.

Funding could help expand the reach of trauma facilities to South Georgia.

It will now be up to the voters in November to decide on the referendum.
