Governor Mark Warner has approved the first series of recommendations from his anti-terrorism task force.
Among the recommendations-- criminal background checks for sensitive positions in state and local government, enacting quarantines in cases of bioterrorism attacks and improving the state's Emergency Alert System.
Warner said he would have to consult with Attorney General Jerry Kilgore on the legality of enacting some of the suggestions, such as the enforced quarantines.
More recommendations are expected by early fall.

The Sheltons are convinced someone has a vendetta against them-- because several other tractor trailers were parked at the same location but were not touched.
