Virginia swing status on hold Tuesday; Prince George's bag tax still alive in assembly; D.C. collected $93M in 2011 parking-ticket fines; D.C. paid roughly $700K in Medicaid for the dead; D.C. sewer authority pays bonus despite vow to save; D.C. man fatally stabbed over dog; D.C. voters face registration deadline for primary.
