Rep. Kevin Tanner, R-Dawsonville.
Ninth District State Representative Kevin Tanner (R-Dawsonville), chairman of the House Transportation Committee, announced last week that the Georgia General Assembly gave final passage to House Bill 930, legislation that creates a new regional governance structure for transit in the metropolitan Atlanta region. "I'd like to thank (Speaker of the House David Ralston, R-Blue Ridge) for his leadership in this area, as well as my fellow conferees, Speaker Pro Tem Jones and Rep. Smyre," said Tanner. "The General Assembly and Governor Deal provided $100 million in the Fiscal Year 2019 budget specifically for transit, and this funding and giving final passage to HB 930 today is very monumental for transit in the state of Georgia."
