Up in Richmond, Gov. Bob McDonnell has put together an interesting proposal to pull Virginia out of a transportation financing rut that, left unfixed, will bring road building statewide to a halt in a few short years. McDonnell’s transit package has a lot of moving parts, but the major takeaway is to get rid of Virginia’s 17.5 cents-per-gallon gas tax and make up for the loss of revenue (and then some) with an increase in the sales tax from 5 percent to 5.8 percent.

We were reminded of this reality this week with the sudden passing of Halifax County Sheriff’s Lieutenant Steve Cassada, as easygoing and decent a person as you’ll ever want to meet. Steve died Saturday night while dining out with his wife and family members at an Altavista restaurant. His death is a tremendous loss for local law enforcement, to say nothing of all the other realms that were graced by his presence.
