And as far as the paying towards the rest of the state. NYC always complains about how much money they get back from the state compared to how much they pay. They have griped for a long time about how this is a ridiculous policy of spite by upstaters. They get back 45 cents on the dollar.

As of the past 3 years we get back 19 cents on the dollar sent to Richmond overall, and about 35-40cents (depending on what you call NOVA...) on the dollar. This new bill will almost assuredly reduce that to a far lesser number to only cover maintenance costs and add no funding for capital projects.

Sure urban areas subsidize rural areas (unless you ask Delegate Kilgore that is), but the extent to which it is happening in this state is absurd and political in motive, and ultimately is an attack on our businesses when the cost of state obligations continues to be passed on in these special tax districts.
