Marshall Was For Unelected Taxing Bodies, Before He was Against Them?


Delegate Bob Marshall likes to speak highly of his bold effort to stop HB 3202 with a Supreme Court challenge, and set himself up as the only US Senatorial Candidate you can trust on this issue.

Only one problem Bob.... Gov. Jim Gilmore vetoed almost exactly the same legislation that you.. ahem.. voted for.

I think someone needs to understand public policy before commenting or at least learn how to do research. The Gilmore campaign does research like math on the car tax. HB 1474 in 2000 by Del. Hall simply allowed two local jurisdictions to what any local jurisdiction already has the power to do when it comes to setting up economic development authorities, so that two localities could work on a joint project. Now I don't want to lose any non-policy people who have lives but the jest is this:

Each elected body, e.g. the County Supervisors, would have to vote seperately to approve taxes or fees. EDA members could not impose tax/fee on their own. One jurisdiction could not force the other to proceed, and only elected members could impose the fees or taxes which the authority would collect.

This is a far cry from HB 3202 where unelected bodies could and did raise fee/taxes. There is no similarity there.
