Yesterday afternoon, the board
approved a resolution that calls for
truck climbing lanes, the extension of
on and off ramps, guardrail upgrades
and other improvements.

The board also approved a rail
study in partnership with Norfolk
Southern... and additional planning for
the long-term future of the highway.

Currently the state has about 140
million dollars from the federal
government for improvements that are
expected to cost 500- million... coming
up with the money will remain an issue.

*CG locator Richmond

That's according to Governor Tim

Kaine yesterday, as he gave marching
orders to a new Health Care Reform
Committee.

He wants the group of lawmakers
and doctors to come up with ways to
improve access for the uninsured, and
help prevent bad health- habits like
physical inactivity and smoking.

Improving long- term care will be
one of the biggest challenges.

That's because Virginia's fastest
growing population is over 85- years-
old and there's already a shortage of
nurses and specialty doctors.

The group has a year to come up
with recommendations.

Plans are to locate it somewhere in

The new clinic means veterans will

outpatient care.. like minor medical
problems and routine checkups.

She taught at a community college
