while vehicle registration fees
increase by ten- dollars.

Kaine's changes also increase the
tax on diesel fuel from 16- cents to

five bills that expand the crimes
punishable by death in Virginia.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT
VO-NAT




*CG file File Tape


One bill eliminated the so called
trigger-man rule, by allowing capital
punishment for those who plan for
others to carry out a killing.

Governor Kaine is morally opposed
to the death penalty, but has allowed
several sentences to be carried out
under his watch.

The Democrat says he doesn't
think capital punishment needs to be
expanded in order to keep Virginians
safe.

Lawmakers can override Kaine's
vetoes when they return to Richmond for
the veto session next month.
