Transportation Investment Act

Transportation & Infrastructure

Transportation
Investment Act

In 2012, voters in three Georgia regions – River Valley, Central Savannah River Area, and the Heart of Georgia Altamaha – approved a 10-year one percent sales tax to fund regional and local transportation improvements. Prior to the votes, Regional Roundtables of local elected officials, with significant public input, selected projects for each region’s Approved Investment List.  

The tax infrastructure program, which is set to expire in 2022, has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in regional revenue, with over 23 projects fully funded, many of which are completed and some of which are still under construction.

TIA Roundtable

The TIA Regional Roundtable (RTR) is the controlling body responsible for the oversight and administration of TIA projects. The RTR elects voting members of the Executive Committee; amends proposed investment criteria; approves the investment criteria that are used for selecting projects; approves or rejects the project listing; and calls for the election.

Citizens Review Panel

In each of the three districts that passed TIA, a Citizens Review Panel was created to make recommendations, and monitor the progress of projects funded by the initiative. The CRP is required to meet a minimum of three times per year, and produce an annual report that outlines the public benefits of TIA projects.
