Statement from Diane Black on the Results of the Nashville Transit Referendum

Nashville, Tenn. – Tonight, Diane Black released the following statement after Davidson County voters overwhelmingly rejected former Mayor Barry’s transit referendum:

Tonight, the voters of Nashville made the right choice,” said Diane Black. “We need to solve the traffic problem in Middle Tennessee, but billion dollar liberal boondoggles are not the solution. This transit plan would have made Nashville the highest-taxed city in the country and risked the economic growth of our entire state. Now it’s time to get to work on a real, strategic regional plan to reduce congestion in downtown Nashville without raising taxes on working families. I look forward to releasing my vision in the coming days.”
