The Governor said that the GA 400 toll that recently passed was a new one. The original toll expired, as required by law.I understand the resistance to taxes but it doesn't justify distorting the information. Keep in mind this is not new taxes but a renewal of an existing tax.
The E-SPLOST legally expires. Therefore, it's not a "renewal." It's a "new" tax. Also, we all know that overruns are a common practice when politicians "forecast" costs. They underestimate publically, not privately, to get something approved.
Maybe the original post was intended to convey that the tax was not an "additional" tax beyond what already is in place.
