End The Water Authorities Tyrannical Reign Of Power

Senator Carrico submitted another bill for the 2013 legislation to attempt to terminate the Water Authorities Reign of power over landlords that are innocent bystanders being punished for the delinquent bills of tenants. REI of Virginia asks Senator Edwards for his continued support. Senator Edwards is a good guy that we have been able to consistently count on to help small business and I'm sure that he will be more than willing to help us out again

See the bill copy below:
