Governor Bob McDonnell made amendments to several bills passed by the General Assembly.
The first includes penalties for texting while driving. The minimum fine has been lowered to $125, and the maximum is now $250. Police can still pull drivers over simply for texting.
The annual hybrid vehicle fee in the Transportation Funding Reform Bill has been lowered from $100 to $64.
Governor McDonnell also changed Virginia's insurance laws. Under his amendments, no insurance plan sold through a health benefits exchange can provide abortion coverage.
