Kicking the tires on the T-SPLOST

Our regional transportation SPLOST appears on the July 31 ballot. Some notable people oppose the T-SPLOST. I’m no automatic defender of SPLOSTs myself, having publicly opposed the 1995 roads program SPLOST as ill conceived (it included, for instance, the silly super-sizing of Forest Hill Road), as well as the 2011 “hodge-podge” SPLOST, which included a number of expensive baubles that we didn’t really need, while insulating our political leaders from having to make tough decisions about their bloated budgets.
