RedStormPAC Has A New Look

RedStormPAC -

RedStormPAC has changed its website's look and we've got our eyes on 2009. Check it out, please let us what you think, and start supporting candidates for this pivotal year.

RedStormPAC is an independent political action committee (PAC) whose mission is to support conservative candidates with an avenue for small dollar donations, organized by committed conservative activists who want to help fellow conservatives utilize the "long tail" of online fundraising.

100% of every contribution is passed directly to the candidate or organization. You donate $100, the candidate will get $100 and RedStormPAC processes the transaction at-cost to itself.

...while legislature is in session.

At the state Capitol today the Virginia General Assembly begins a 60-day legislative session.

Key issues in the session will include Gov. Timothy M. Kaine's two-year $78 billion budget proposal and his proposed fixes to the state's mental-health system nearly nine months after the Virginia Tech slayings.

Tonight: At 7 p.m., Kaine presents his State of the Commonwealth Address to a joint session meeting in the House of Delegates chamber.

The governors address:


"Attention Virginians: The cost of bad driving is about to go up. Way up.

"Say you are driving 78 mph on the Capital Beltway and a state trooper tickets you for 'reckless driving - speeding 20 mph over.' You will probably be fined $200 by the judge. But then you will receive a new, additional $1,050 fine from the Old Dominion, payable in three convenient installments. So convenient that you must pay the first one immediately, at the courthouse...

"As part of the plan to fund the annual $1 billion transportation package approved this year, state legislators endorsed a new set of 'civil remedial fees' for all misdemeanor and felony traffic violations, such as speeding 20 mph above the limit, reckless driving and, in some cases, driving with faulty brakes. Drivers with points on their licenses - a speeding ticket usually earns four points - will be hit for $75 for every point above eight and $100 for having that many points in the first place."
