Nashville, TN

Outcome:

Nashville is assembling a 25-year $5.4 billion regional transit plan, which would include light rail in Nashville and commuter rail in surrounding counties.  The state legislature passed the IMPROVE Act in the spring of 2017, which both raises the statewide gas tax and provides enabling legislation for communities to hold referendums for local option sales taxes or other taxes to fund transit projects.  Nashville Mayor Megan Barry is now pushing for a May 1, 2018 referendum.
