As an update to the December 13, 2011 blog post on VaLocalityLaw, “Devolution: Will Virginia Pass its “Neglected,” “Crumbling” Highway System on to Local Governments?” Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell has stated his position.

In an article appearing on a Washington Post blog post, “McDonnell does not support shifting transportation costs to localities,” Governor McDonnell stated that devolution of state highways to localities without money to pay for it is bad public policy. He says the issue needs to be studied. He only appears to favor devolution if localities can pay for the costs, saying ““If you have the authority, then you ought to have the ability to pay for it. That’s just common sense.”
