ATLANTA (AP) - Voters have adopted an amendment freezing Georgia’s top marginal income tax rate.

A constitutional amendment prohibiting the Legislature from raising income taxes above the current top rate of 6 percent was approved in voting Tuesday. It was among three ballot questions Georgia voters were asked to settle in the midterm elections.

A second amendment authorizing state lawmakers to impose additional fines for reckless driving that would fund medical treatment and rehabilitation for people with brain and spinal injuries also passed.

Finally, voters approved a referendum to allow Georgia’s public universities to extend their exemption from property taxes to private companies hired to operate campus dorms.
