Bill would help taxpayers, Habitat for Humanity


Delinquent property owners could settle their tax bills by donating their property to Habitat for Humanity or a similar nonprofit, under legislation moving through the General Assembly.

Known as the Habitat Bill, it would enable delinquent taxpayers to exchange their property for the taxes they owe, explained the legislation’s sponsor, Del. Robert Orrock Sr., R-Thornburg. > Read more.

Senate may increase vehicle registration fee


The Senate is considering a bill that would impose an additional vehicle registration fee in Virginia and use the money to fund the State Police.

The Senate Finance Committee voted 10-4 last week in favor of the measure, which would establish a new fee of $1.25 this July, on top of the standard cost of registering a motor vehicle. The bill is now before the full Senate and must pass by Tuesday night or else it is dead for this legislative session.

Under Senate Bill 754, the additional fee would increase by $1.25 each year until 2024, when it would be capped at $12.50. The resulting revenue would go into a newly created account called the Public Safety Trust Fund and allocated to the Department of State Police. > Read more.
