    As Lt. Gov., Kaine has almost no role to play in the Legislature - especially with the GOP dominance in both chambers.

    Kaine is also unapologetically pro-life to include opposition to the death penalty. So I don't see a scenario where they can force him to make a statement on the bill that would be damaging.

    I think Devolites is trying to ensure that she can fend off a primary challenge. Remember that she voted for Warner's budget deal last session. Lots of wingnuts in VA want revenge against the "tax turncoats" like her. This vote might offer her a way to split the wingnuts by throwing a bone to the "rapture" crowd.
