Currently the County only bills
patients if they're picked up by a
career rescue squad.

In the future, the bill could
come for pickups made by volunteers as
well.


A system that's already in place
in most areas, including Raonoke
County, where the billing brings in an
estimated one and a half million
dollars each year.

The good news is typically 97
percent of the cost is billed to the
patient's insurance provider.

And if the patient can't afford to
come up with the rest, it's a write
off.

If Franklin County approves the
plan, the money collected would be used
mainly for buildings to house
volunteers.

Yesterday, the House Finance
committee killed his plan to increase
taxes on car sales and insurance

Governor Kaine believes raising
new funds is essential to a reliable,

long- term transportation fix.

But, Republican delegates say tax
increases aren't necessary while the
state is enjoying a billion- dollar-
surplus.

Governor Kaine believes his tax
proposals could be brought up again
during a compromise at the end of the
session.

Yesterday, he told News 7 coming
up with a transportation solution is
going to take some "backbone."

Meanwhile, a group of senators
has also proposed increasing the tax on
car sales.

That bill has not yet made it to
the House for consideration.
