    Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell has proposed taking a small percentage of the state's sales tax revenue to help fund new road projects.

    McDonnell says this plan would raise an additional $90 million.  The money would go to relieving congestion on some of Northern Virginia's busiest roads.

    Some of the projects include the I-95 and 395 HOT lanes, and widening commuter roads like Route 28 in Fairfax and I-66 in Prince William.

    Democrats say this plan would take money from schools and other core services.

    The proposal is now in lawmakers' hands.  The 2011 session ends February 26.
