The critics were right all along.
Governor Jim Gilmore's plan to cut the car tax over five years will cost a BILLION dollars more than he promised in the campaign.
But at last, he's laid out some specifics.

Well Jean, today the Governor said he will need an EXTRA 236-million dollars for just the first two years of car tax phase-out -- and to add another thousand schoolteachers over the thousand Governor Allen had budgeted.
The good news is that most of that money comes from revised revenue projections, courtesy of a booming economy.
But some of it comes in what Gilmore calls "adjustments," i.e. CUTS to what Allen had promised to progams like the Roanoke Higher Education Center and the Virginia Museum of Natural History in Martinsville.

But the Centers for Disease Control says new AIDS cases are rising twice as fast among older people as among youner ones.
The number of people 50 and older with AIDS was 22-percent higher in 1996 than in 1991.
Cases among 10- to- 49 year olds rose nine- percent during the same period.
The C-D-C says those figures suggest older Americans are not protecting themselves.
They also say doctors are not looking for the disease, partly beacuse symptoms of HIV- infection often look like illnesses common in older people.
