Instead of raising fees on working class Virginians how about cutting spending for a change of pace. First, it was adding the license tax to personal property taxes and then increasing that tax by 60%. Then it was tolls at bridges and tunnels. Now higher fees for state inspection. The Virginia General Assembly is greedy...remember who your work for.
