Hope for HRTA

The Supreme Court of VA found that HRTA could not leverage taxes because it was unconstitutional for a non-elected body to tax residents. Now theres talk of how much HRTA will fail. Here is my idea. Why not have the General Assembly levy the taxes earmark the money for the HRTA. Same for Northern VA. Then an elected body is taxing residents. Is this so difficult for our representatives to figure out? I don't think so. Instead, I think that they have some sort of allergy to taxes. They are more concerned about their popularity then about our well being. They do not realize that with out improving our transportation, our area will economically die. I still do not agree with the projects. I think that instead of a forward path to a solution, they are more of a sidestep around the problem. It is still, however, not a stagnant plan or a regressive plan. Hampton Roads needs help. Since we cannot all pave our own streets, we need the help of the government.

That's what the bill that Frank Wagner submitted after the ruling - and that I blogged in favor of - would have done.

It's the most logical solution here.
