Just in time for us to be moving down there. Yippee

Got my $1 McDonald’s coffee at the drive-thru this morning on the way to work. Had to give the nice lady (I’m a regular, so she knows me) an extra penny today. “That’ll be $1.06 today,” she said. “Happy July!” I smiled, and drove to the pick-up window.

HB1639, Exempts correspondence by members of the General Assembly and their aides from public view under the Freedom of Information Act. (Chapter 199)
HB1855, Exempts Virginia Department of Aviation records from the Freedom of Information Act. (Chapter 574)
HB2280, Exempts records of public disaster recovery plans from the Freedom of Information Act. (Chapter 600)
I need to find out what these 3 mean. Somehow, I’m not feeling all warm and fuzzy about information being withheld from FOIA requests. Particularly those GA sleazoids and their flying monkeys.

Thank you, Bob McDonnell! The biggest tax increase in VA history from the “conservative” who ran on no new taxes.

Money is to government as heroin and cocaine to drug addicts.
There are over 700 new laws taking effect today. Something is terribly wrong here.

The decriminalized it. AS IF that law had been enforced in decades.

On the up side, records of concealed carry permit holders can no longer be made public.
You can also continue to apply make-up, read the paper and eat Big Macs while driving.

The benefit of the law is that it prevented a large assortment of related cases from entering Commonwealth courts. No 'common law' property cases. No domestic disputes. A residence belonged to either the man or the woman, and only that person had rights to remain there.
Say what you want about enforcement (or lack thereof), but Virginia's cohabitation law is one thing they got right. At least until now.

Will the DC burbs now finally quit griping about never getting enough transportation money from the state?
