"We will be the first state in the nation to eliminate the gas tax, which is projected to be in a long term decline." He predicts the plan will generate "$600 million more than our current gas tax revenues from organic economic growth, not tax increases" for transportation projects across the Commonwealth.

McDonnell also asked state lawmakers to support legislation that would restore civil rights to non-violent offenders. The move prompted a standing ovation from House Democrats.

Seems even the Democrats disagree with no-show. nothead has no supporters.

Elimination of the gas tax will hurt our economy. He favors an increase of the sales tax...non the less a tax increase. Theres some devilment in the details. However, i'm in favor of giving non-violent offenders their right to vote again. What a novel idea...this time maybe they can join with the other sensible ppl. and vote those rethugs outta office.
Elimination of the gas tax will hurt nobody no-show.

I would rather reduce it to 10 cents a gallon and still raise the sales tax by .8 as he wants.

After Kaine and his clowns doing no maintenance for 4 years, the road repairs are not complete yet. McDonnell has made a good start, but the money to continue is not there yet.

Fortunately, the idiots at VDOT that screwed Virginia are now gone. Too bad you are still here polluting this board with your stupidity nothead.
