Reforming the Virginia tax code is "an issue we have to take on this coming year"

Governor Warner has formed a small group to help him figure out how to reform Virginia's tax laws, according to this report, which notes that the committee of legislators has made no particular progress on this massive undertaking.

The Washington Post is reporting here that the governor will not put forth his tax reform proposals until after the November elections, when all the seats in the General Assembly will be on the ballot.

Earlier in the week, the Virginian-Pilot noted here that Del. Robert McDonnell, a statewide candidate for 2005, is stepping out of the legislative effort on tax reform, and blaming the governor for its lack of success.
