In my previous post, I asked The Big Question regarding the impending Greenville County sales tax referendum for road repair.

The Big Question – Does the passage of the referendum in any way reduce the amount of money spent by DOT in Greenville in the future?

Since DOT projects come from their priority list and if we use our referendum sales tax revenue to complete a project from the DOT list, would we retain our position (and allocated budget) on the DOT list or do we lose our position?

So far, the House budget committee lawyers saw no provision in the referendum or in state law that addresses this concern. The DOT position remains that Greenville County will not lose funds, but cannot cite a specific code section or regulation.
