Running as an independent with socially liberal views against Del. G. Manoli Loupassi, the Republican incumbent in the 68th House District, William K. “Bill” Grogan says he wants to fight for fair play in the workplace and elections, protect the environment and preserve individual freedoms —including the right of gays and lesbians to marry and allowing women to make their own health choices.

Move to end E-ZPass fee sent to study, won't pass this session

By OLYMPIA MEOLA, Richmond Times-Dispatch (Metered Paywall - 7 articles a month)

An attempt to eliminate the monthly fee on E-ZPass transponders was referred today for further study in the Joint Commission on Transportation Accountability, which will look at the idea later this year. After lengthy debate in the House Transportation Committee, the bill sponsored by Del. G. Manoli Loupassi, R-Richmond, was sent for further discussion, meaning the proposal lives for another day, but the issue is dead for this session.

House subcommittee backs removing monthly fee on E-ZPass devices

By OLYMPIA MEOLA, Richmond Times-Dispatch (Metered Paywall - 7 articles a month)

Del. G. Manoli Loupassi’s attempt to eliminate the monthly fee on E-ZPass transponders advanced through a House subcommittee this morning over the concerns of road operators and the Virginia Department of Transportation. VDOT began charging a monthly fee of 50 cents on regular transponders and $1 for the Flex transponder for new customers as of July 9, 2012. The agency says the fee will help to cover the cost of administering the program, which allows drivers to use open air tolling gantries as opposed to stopping at a booth to toss change. The bill moves to the full House Transportation Committee, where it could face rough going.
