After months of study and weeks of legislative maneuvering, the fate of mass transit legislation in the General Assembly will come down to two days and six people trying to compromise.
A conference committee of House and Senate members is hashing out differences between two bills that could pave the way for the most substantial expansion of mass transit in metro Atlanta in decades.
Representing the Senate on the committee are Sens. Brandon Beach, R-Alpharetta; Steve Gooch, R-Dahlonega; and David Lucas, D-Macon. The House’s representatives are Reps. Jan Jones, R-Milton; Calvin Smyre, D-Columbus; and Kevin Tanner, R-Dawsonville.
