Thanks to Tom Whipple for the Monday “Clips.”

1. IS THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY BECOMING MORE LIKE CONGRESS?

2. STATE POISED TO CREATE NEW WATCHDOG AGENCY

3. VA. BILL WOULD LIFT BAN ON CAR-TITLE LENDING TO OUT-OF-STATE DRIVERS

4. DONATIONS BY CAR-TITLE LOAN FIRMS

5. GOVERNOR’S PROPOSAL COULD JOLT STALLED VA. TOURISM PROJECTS

6. BILL TACKLES PASSING SPACE AROUND BICYCLES

7. SENATE OKS BILL ON DETAINING SEX OFFENDERS

9. GROUP SETS OWN PATH

15. HEALTH CARE IN THE COURTS

23. STRANGE DISEASE IS KILLING VIRGINIA’S BATS

24. FEDS REVIEW HRT’S FINANCIAL HANDLING OF LIGHT RAIL

26. METRO’S PROPOSAL TO END LATE-NIGHT WEEKEND TRAINS RANKLES WASHINGTON’S PARTY CROWD

Also, check out Sen. Donald McEachin speaking on why Metro Richmond gets screwed (my word, not his) under Bob McDonnell’s transportation “plan.” By the way, I really wish the Senate Democrats would get these videos up faster; this one took 12 days.

  • There aren’t words to describe how disappointed and disgusted I am with point number 3 — the lifting of the ban on car-title lending to out of state drivers.  (I would add that I think doing this to instate drivers is even WORSE….)

    Supporting an industry that charges mob-like “interest” rates on our most vulnerable citizens (of any state) is not being “pro-business.”  It’s being a tool for monied interests against core Democratic values.
