Charlottesville–Right Now: Jim Bacon of Bacon’s Rebellion previews the 2007 General Assembly

Jim Bacon of Bacon’s Rebellion joins Coy Barefoot to talk about the latest in Virginia politics. The General Assembly reconvenes next week, and the discussion in this interview is over what role transportation will play in this short session. Governor Kaine says he wants the session to focus on how to pay for road and transit projects throughout the state. Bacon outlines how he thinks the session will unfold.

“The governor is still pushing really hard for what he calls a sustainable long-term transportation funding, and the Republicans in the House are just as insistent against it,” says Bacon. “Hopefully what will happen is that there’s some room for agreement.”

In this show, Coy also laments the decision by blogger Norm Leahy to stop posting to his site, One Man’s Trash.
