thank you for confirming my point Mike.And no, I don't think you will see it again any time soon. We'll just watch Atlanta lose more and more jobs to cities that invest in their infrastructure. It is very very simple and not hard to see that coming.

The cost of not approving a TSPLOST even if it is substantially not efficient is far greater than the cost of approving a bad one. If every other market is passing TSPLOSTs to stay current with their transportation and core infrastructure needs and some are not, regardless of the reason they are not, in the long run companies certainly will look more favorably on cities that are improving and reinvesting in themselves than those that are not. Nothing complicated about that. It's just common sense.
