War Of Words Continues Over Power Shift In Richmond

The new Republican minority in the State Senate is accusing Democrats of going too far with their recent power shift.  Senator Richard Stuart (R-Stafford County) is upset about the Democrats’ decision to give the new Rules Committee chairman a lot more clout. Stuart says Roanoke Senator John Edwards has the ability to veto legislation on a whim. Local Senator Creigh Deeds has a different take on what happened January 28th. Deeds is the new chairman of the Senate Transportation Committee. He’s also picked up seats on the Finance and Rules Committees. Deeds has been in Richmond since 1992, and this is the first time he’s landed a seat on one of the money committees.
