At the State Capitol in Richmond, Va., the Virginia General Assembly is in the process of revising the Constitution of Virginia. Senator James C. Turk supports an amendment passed by the Senate Committee on Insurance and Banking regarding laws that regulate corporations. In response to the Virginia's House of Delegates's outcry against this amendment, Senator Turk says their version was too indefinite and would invite lawsuits. According to Senator Turk, the Senate's version features a provision to allow for the size of the State Corporation Commission, designed to protect the consumer, to increase from three to five members elected by both houses of the General Assembly.
