Georgia voters will get to decide later this year on what's called a T-SPLOST, a regional sales tax that would pay for transportation projects.
It would be a one percent sales tax on one cent on most every dollar you spend.
It's not a statewide measure; it's determined by region.
Each region will decide whether to approve their own. The Central Georgia Region consists of 11 counties including Bibb, Houston, Twiggs, Baldwin, Crawford, Peach, Pulaski, Putnam and Wilkinson.
The state estimates that a Central Georgia Region T-SPLOST could bring in $78 million over 10 years.
"Macon gets in the multimillion dollars in Bibb County," said State Rep. James "Bubber" Epps. "The counties that surround us based on population you look at a million, anywhere from three quarters to a million dollars a year."
Three quarters will go to Georgia Department of Transportation and the rest stays local.
