Governor Tim Kaine has made to more

File Tape On transportation, Kaine
increased the legislature's two- and-
a- half- billion- dollar bond package
to three- billion.... designating
existing taxes to repay the debt.

He also proposes increasing the
tax on diesel fuel to match that on
gasoline.

Delegate Morgan Griffith will ask
the House to reject Kaine's amendments
to his smoking bill... changes that ban
smoking in ALL restaurants.

Griffith fears the amendments go
too far... affecting smoking near

street venders and in stadiums.

The next topic...should Virginia
expand its list of crimes punishable by
death?

Kaine *vetoed* five bills that do
just that.

Now, lawmakers CAN override the
governor's vetoes with a two- thirds
vote in both houses.

They're convening this afternoon
in the renovated capitol.

The area we're talking about is

for the past year city leaders have
sought proposals to develop
Countryside.

Last night, the city unveiled the
only proposal it received.

The plan calls for a drastic
change, with a mixture of residential
and commercial development.
