John Pezold's thoughts

SB 183 allows the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) to enter into public private partnerships and issue bonds to private developers who contract to work on state-owned projects. The bill also aligns the procurement method to mirror that of the Georgia Department of Transportation.

I voted NO because I don't believe the state should be backing bonds for private companies.
