RICHMOND – The world-famous “droopy drawers” bill soon may have company in the graveyard of high-profile bills that were born in the House of Delegates and shot down in the state Senate. In the next two weeks, the Senate is all but assured to kill House- approved bills that would have restarted the car-tax repeal, added more regulations to abortions and banned illegal aliens from attending state universities.
The Senate also seems likely to defeat House measures that would ban gay couples from adopting children and would constitutionally protect prayer in schools.
