SGA to vote on resolution to support local sales tax

A new resolution was brought up in open forum of UHR supporting the new Transportation Investment Act. This act, also known as T-SPLOST, will seek to improve the transportation of metro Atlanta through its Atlanta Streetcar line, as well as the Atlanta Beltline Project by implementing a transportation special local one-percent sales tax (T-SPLOST).

“I think it lines up with every initiative that Tech pushes,” said Eran Mordel, SGA Vice President of Campus Affairs, citing the positive effects to campus safety, accessibility to Tech, the aesthetics, less congestion and sustainability in the nearby area.

The resolution will be in old business for next week’s meeting, when a vote on the measure could be held.
