Governor Tim Kaine is taking steps to improve the interaction between the panel investigating the Virginia Tech shootings and the families of the victims.
Thomas Fadoul, the attorney representing some of the victims' relatives, says that the seven point proposal has not been finalized yet. The plan would designate one panel member as a liaison with the families.
They would also send the families weekly emails explaining what they are doing. Families would have a right to protest directly to the governor if they had any problems with the panel's work.
Kaine's spokesman, Kevin Hall, says that the proposal was created after the governor's meeting with family members last week.
