Last night at the Bob McDonnell fundraiser at Walter Curt's home, discussions were ongoing about the just-completed Special Session of the General Assembly and what had come out of it. The consensus among a number of those who attended, those who had been unhappy with Sen. Emmett Hanger's pro-tax votes in the past, was appreciation that he voted against the proposed gas tax.
Democrat Sen. Dick Saslaw's bill proposed hiking taxes on gasoline, raising the sales tax, and increasing the new car sales tax. No Republicans voted for the bill.
Thank you, Sen. Hanger.
