Other proposed changes to the law that governs MARTA include:
- A caucus of North Fulton County mayors would pick two members of the MARTA board of directors. South Fulton mayors, the Fulton County Commission Chairman and affected county commissioners would appoint one board member, and DeKalb County mayors would pick a board member.
- The governor would pick a board member from Fulton or DeKalb county as a voting member on the board, and the current voting state representative, the commissioner of the Department of Transportation, would be changed to be a nonvoting member.
- The law requiring MARTA to use 50 percent of its sales tax revenues for capital improvements will be suspended for three more years to allow the agency more flexibility in marshaling its resources.
