A week ago all the signatures were affixed to HB 6028 but one: Governor Tim Kaine's. Delegate Bob Tata's light rail bill for Virginia Beach passed the General Assembly during the Transportation special session with only one member (Ken Cuccinelli) voting "No".
The delay is perplexing given Kaine's previous support on associated issues: he attended the Norfolk light rail groundbreaking, put money in the budget to purchase light rail cars for Norfolk, proposed a Transportation plan that included much increased transit funding, etc. Why the delay in signing?
It's very simple, Governor: pick up a pen and put your name on the bill.
