So this thread is for my fellow Georgians. The TSPLOST vote is coming up, and was wondering what y'all's thoughts are on it.
AJC article from yesterday on it:

Rogers noted that the transportation sales tax is being sold as a 10-year tax, but the transit lines' operations will still need to be paid for when that time is up.
