A Virginia lawmaker is pushing legislation to add the state to an interstate compact that would exempt members from President Obama's health care overhaul — a budding movement that's providing states across the country with another constitutional weapon to combat the landmark law.
"In its essence, it's transferring the decision-making power and federal funds to the states," Mr. Peace said. "Would this include everything that, say, federal health care reform has in it? Likely not."
"We were told by the governor that we needed to consider and pass his proposals before we could even talk about tolls," Mr. Peace said with a scowl. "That is not acceptable."
