CIDs want more money for transportation.

$200 billion more.

The alliance’s (an alliance of 11 CIDs in the Atlanta metro area) resolution calls for support of solutions that would let areas vote for transportation projects. The state is projecting a $200 billion shortfall on transportation projects through 2035, Georgia DOT Commissioner Harold Linnenkohl said Monday.

$200 billion over the next 28 years works out to about $7 billion a year. Chump change!

    Why in the heck are they providing projections 28 years into the future? Seriously, that’s like 14 elections from now. It’s not just “like,” it IS 14 elections away. What a ridiculous projection.

    And should I know what a CID is?
