Four stories you should know about:

The SCC will halt rate caps for utilities starting December 31st. Translation: Higher power bills. Some Allegheny Power customers may see as much as a $20 jump. 

-Senator Mark Obenshain slammed Governor Kaine for using bad numbers in this year’s budget process.

-Apparently members of the Virginia Delegation in Congress have been to Iraq over 31 times. Impressive, although all the praise seems to be reserved for Obama’s two trips. 

-RPV Chairman Jeff Frederick did a little dance on Tim Kaine’s face ego:

It isn’t clear how the governor’s failed logic leads him to the conclusion that the failure to address Virginia’s transportation challenges somehow falls upon Republicans. Republicans acted to address Virginia’s transportation challenges. Democrats obstructed – namely, on the governor’s proposals. Mr. Kaine’s press conference reminds me of when my 21-month-old daughter throws a temper tantrum because we gave her the red pacifier instead of the white one. She’s still getting the pacifier, just as the House Republicans did address transportation. But because Mr. Kaine didn’t get the pacifier he wanted (a massive tax hike on hardworking Virginia families), he’s now throwing a tantrum of his own.
