The Georgia 20/20 Statewide Transportation Act Gets Its Second Unanimous Vote Passes House Transportation Committee

Today the Georgia 20/20 Statewide Transportation Act, HB 277, and the accompanying Constitutional Amendment, HR 206, sponsored by House Transportation Chairman Vance Smith Jr. (R-Pine Mountain), passed the House Transportation Committee without a single dissenting vote. The 20/20 Act also passed subcommittee unanimously.

“The Georgia 20/20 Statewide Transportation Act took another important step forward today passing the House Transportation Committee with broad support,” said Rep. Vance Smith, Jr. “This legislation addresses real transportation needs, not just in one part of the state, but for all of Georgia. I look forward to bringing the 20/20 Act before the full House for my colleagues’ consideration.”

The 20/20 Act now goes before the House Rules Committee where it will be eligible for assignment to the debate calendar and a vote by the full House of Representatives.

Representative Vance Smith, Jr. represents the citizens of District 129, which includes portions of Harris, Troup and Muscogee counties. He was first elected to the House of Representatives in 1992 and currently serves as Chairman of the Transportation Committee. He also serves on the Appropriations, Economic Development & Tourism, and Rules committees.
