I may have an upcoming opportunity to sit down with my state representative to talk policy. I've got a couple things on my wish list like reducing the minimum speed limit from 25mph to 20mph and allowing land value taxes. Does anyone have any recommendations for my state (Georgia) to allow/mandate for local governments?

When I look at Urban3's profit and loss maps for cities, sometimes I see suburban-style developments that are profitable and traditional pre-WWII neighborhoods that lose money (especially residential areas). It looks like the financial picture is more complicated than all post-WWII suburban development is insolvent and all pre-WWII development is solvent. Can Joe explain why the picture might be more complicated?
