This Week in GeorgiaGov:
This October, The Clean Air Campaign, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition and local transportation management associations have organized the first-ever Bike to Work Challenge. The Bike to Work Challenge encourages current and new bicycle commuters to compete as individuals or on teams with other cycling enthusiasts in the metro Atlanta area.
In an effort to reduce state employee commute times, Governor Nathan Deal recently initiated the Georgia CommuteSmart Program. The plan includes four commuter options for agencies and state employees to choose from, allowing for more flexibility in their work travel schedule.
More than 1.6 million voters sent in advance ballots and headed to the polls for yesterday's general primary, one that saw the defeat of the T-SPLOST and the approval of Sunday liquor sales in select counties.
Governor Deal recently announced his plan to remove the Georgia 400 toll at the end of 2013. The announcement detailed to have the state pay off its bond debt on December 1, 2013, and move quickly to eliminate the unpopular toll by the end of that year, stopping collection 4 years earlier than previously planned.
Among the projects dependent on the coming T-SPLOST vote, the Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative aims to help scientists, students and veterans move just a bit more quickly through Atlanta.
