Two bills dealing with the issue have been sent to the House floor. One would ban the flow of unregulated donations or "soft money" to political parties. The other bill is favored by Gilmore and the House Republican leadership. It would ban parties from raising or using soft money for federal election activities such as T-V ads but would allow soft money for voter registration.

Laws are getting a little tougher for anyone charged with drinking and driving. A new law went into effect yesterday - allowing judges and juries in Virginia to be informed when a defendant REFUSES to take a breathalyzer test. But the law also instructs judges and juries not to consider their refusal as evidence of guilt. Defense lawyers contend the law is unfair and irrelevant as to whether a driver was truly intoxicated when pulled over.
