The Georgia House passed a bill that would revamp governance of the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, privatize some services, and impose tighter restrictions on the issuance of bonds.

House Bill 264, sponsored by Rep. Mike Jacobs, R-Brookhaven, would shrink MARTA's government board to 11 members from 18, and require more members to be appointed from outside of Atlanta. Brookhaven is about 12 miles north of Atlanta.
