Abstract
At the State Capitol in Richmond, Va., the Virginia General Assembly is in the process of revising the Constitution of Virginia. The Senate Committee on Counties, Cities, and Towns, headed by Senator William B. Hopkins, Jr., released its legislative package for the new constitution. Senator Hopkins tells WSLS-TV that the legislative package is an improvement but admits that he is not fond of it. Senator Hopkins's main concern is that the problem of consolidation has not been fully reconciled by this final product.
