HB 1395: Abandoned Vehicles Sold Online

Virginia House Bill 1395 will, when enacted, as it probably will be, authorize the state of Virginia to sell abandoned vehicles on the Internet:

And they'll wait only two months, instead of three, before they sell your "Found On the Road Dead" to the highest bidder. So if you have found it necessary to finish a road trip through Virginia by way of Amtrak or Greyhound, start watching the'Net now.

If you really hate this bill, there's still time to explain why to any State Senator except "Newman, Marsh, Watkins, Puckett, Wagner, Blevins, Deeds, McDougle, Smith, Marsden, McWaters, Colgan, Carrico, Favola, Alexander." No links here, because these are the senators who've already voted in favor of HB 1395.
