In June 2012, Georgia’s proposed Transportation Investment Act, called TSPLOST all over the state, was being debated before coming up on an election ballot.
The Lincoln County commissioners were drooling over the new tax money. They didn’t like this message.
The words of warning were played and replayed on Lincoln County’s cable television network which reaches nearly every household in the county.
The election was held and the people of Lincoln County turned TSPLOST down despite the support of the elected officials and the Chamber of Commerce.
Home rule died with the TSPLOST vote.
