TSPLOST drawing little local support

May 30, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Douglas County Sentinel

With only two months remaining until the July 31 vote on a 1-cent transportation tax, the proposal seems to be generating little public interest in Carroll County.

VOTE "NO" on TSPLOST on July 31, 2012

NO NEW TAXES - this is a new tax that has never existed before. DONíT VOTE A NEW TAX ON YOURSELF.

INCREASES THE SALES TAX ON FOOD, electricity and other essentials to build new roads. Ups sales taxes from 7 to 8 % for TEN years. No effect on gas tax or other transportation related activities.

ONLY 1/4 OF TAX COLLECTED IS RETURNED to the county. The rest goes to GDOT to build roads around the region mostly in urban, and not rural areas.

UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Creates a new level of government between the State and the County: Regional Transportational Authority that is not accountable to the People.
