And you're surprised? I think a review of the state's history of nonsupport for transit should lead you to expect such things.
I can certainly see the desire for a new stadium - they are being built/funded all over the country and Atlanta needs to stay in the mix. But I wish we could move forward on more transit options for Metro Atlanta too...they don't have be mutually exclusive.
