Three constitutional amendments are headed for approval-
but two others are apparently going down to defeat.
(---------------)

[boards 220]
Amendements three and four did not pass-
They were intended to boost economic development- First by allowing localities to establish a governing body for a regional industrial park- [board 230]
and second by allowing communities to share the cost and tax revenue from such a venture.
Republican leaders opposed 3 and 4 saying they would lead to taxation without representation.
Ultimately tonight voters also rejected Amendemments three and four. [board 210]
Voters did say yes to allowing lawmakers to determine how much information to make public when a judge is investigated. [board 200]
Virginias are also expanding voting opportuntiies for Virginians living overseas- [board 240]
And Amendment number five also passed- which will enable local governments to elimate a tax on businesses.

The margin was a little wider in Chatham. Mixed Drinks passed there by a 58-to-42 percent margin. [BOARD 370]
Voters in Henry County approved a meals tax. With 100 percent of the vote in, the tax was approved with 64 percent of the vote. [BOARD 320]

In Indiana, Evan Bayh took back the senate seat for the Democrats...a seat once held by his father.
