GA Sales Tax to Go Up?

ATLANTA (AP) The Senate easily approved a pair of bills Tuesday. Together, they permit regions to band together to charge a one-cent sales tax to fund transportation initiatives.

Voters statewide must approve the plan at the ballot box in 2010
as a constitutional amendment. Once local officials join together
and craft a list of projects, voters in the affected areas would
need to approve the penny increase for that region.

One of the regions encompasses a 10-county region in metro
Atlanta, with some of the worst commute times in the nation. The
House is pushing a plan that would boost the sales tax statewide.
