The Democrats in Atlanta have announced support for a transportation plan that Republican Senator Jeff Mullis is happy too see.  Mullis, who represents Chattooga, Dade, Walker and part of Catoosa County in the Georgia State Senate, is the chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee.

Mullis said of the Democrats plan  “I’m glad to see the Democrats have come out with a similar plan to what the Senate offered the House last year, which still remains active in the Transportation Conferee Committee.  Transportation is not a partisan issue.  We should all come together, as we did in the Senate, to work on solutions that are best for all Georgians."

The plan developed by House minority leader Dubose Porter calls for 1 cent of state sales tax money to go for local transportation projects.
