Railroading HB 264

February 14, 2013

HB 264, which dropped Friday, passed out of subcommittee yesterday with only Rep. Pat Gardner voting against it, despite every public comment being negative. You can read tweets from the hearing on my Spotify story. The bill proceeds to the full Transportation committee today at 2:00 at the Cloverdell office building, room 506. You bet your bottom dollar I’ll be there. I may even make public comment again.

Some newsiness:

Some police officers were arrested for apparently taking hush money from gangs and aiding drug deals, including one MARTA officer.

Creative Loafing has a cycling opinion piece up today.

GRTA quietly asks the state to continue its funding, while the state fails to fund any other transit.

Legislation has been introduced to end the Amtrak monopoly, because so many other passenger rail providers are going bankrupt from the competition.

Cobb DOT looks to Cleveland for how to build a BRT.

Finally, to end on a good note (best note ever) it’s Valentine’s Day! If you’re on Twitter (you best be following me) play along with our #twitterthursday game and give us your best #transitpickuplines.
