Kaine Sets Sights on Abusive Driving Tax

About time!  Governor Kaine has called for an end to the Virginia Driving Fees (Virginia Pilot):

Gov. Timothy M. Kaine called for the repeal of new high penalties against abusive drivers and urged passage of reforms in education and mental health treatment during his State of the Commonwealth address to the General Assembly on Wednesday night.

A number of candidates who ran in the last cycle, including Chap Peterson, made the driving fees a campaign issue.  As the governor starts ratcheting up the already high public pressure to remove the fees, let’s watch the General Assembly and see who stands up against this hidden tax.
