Read what the mainstream media print about bills coming out of the General Assembly and you get an overview picture of what's going on.
But dig a little deeper ... take the time to read the fine print ... and you may be surprised at what you find. That's what DJ McGuire discovered when he delved into SB 6009, the "gas tax" bill.

Read his post, Under the Senate Democrats’ bill, sales taxes would also go up in SWAC, the Richmond area, and the Fredericksburg area, for all the details.
