Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): AYES 29, NOS 8. RULE 361. >> THE BILL PASSS.

[Unknown]: HOUSE BILL 1060 A BILL RELATING TO LOCALITIES TOWING FEES REPORTING FROM THE COMMITTEE ON TRANSPORTATION. THE SENATOR FROM GREY SON. DEALING WITH THE LOCALITIES IN PLANNING DISTRICT 8 THAT HAVE ORDINANCES AS FAR AS HOOKUP AND TOWING FEES. THIS BILL BASICALLY REQUIRES ARE RINGTON COUNTY WHICH IS THE ONLY CONSIDER ARLINGTON COUNTY WHICH IS THE ONLY VIRGINIA COUNTY NOT TO RAISE THE TOWING FEE TO $135 WHICH IS THE STATEWIDE CAP, AND IT IS RUNNING OTHER BUSINESSES AROUND THEM OUT OF BUSINESS. AND I THINK I WILL HAVE SOMEONE TOW THIS GENTLEMAN'S CAR AWAY. IT CHARGES THE SAME AMOUNTS AND KEEPS THE CAP AT $135.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL HOUSE BILL 1060 PASS. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILLS AYE, THOSE OPPOSED NO. ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE? HAVE ALL THE SENATORS VOTED? DO ANY SENATORS DESIRE TO CH ANGE THEIR VOTE? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL.
