Senate Expected to take up Bristol Virginia bill concerning The Falls
Next week, Virginia’s Senate is expected to re-examine legislation to help the City of Bristol Virginia satisfy its bond counsel for borrowing millions of dollars for The Falls project at Exit 5. It’s concerning repaying the bond issue with state sales tax revenue as the project develops in phases and partially outside of the city in the county. While the Senate initially killed the city’s bill, the House passed it, which means the Senate must take it up again. The city has faced opposition from property owners of the competing Pinnacle development in Bristol Tennessee. Bristol Virginia Mayor Guy Odum said, “We have no problem with that Tennessee development; let us alone, let us do our development.” Both sides have had lobbyists at work. (LM)
