    A new proposal to raise money for transportation projects in Virginia is raising some eyebrows.

    Loudoun CountyDelegate David Poisson proposed a mileage tax to raise revenue at a time when the state is facing almost a billion-dollar budget deficit, he said.

    Poisson wants the drivers who use the roads the most to pay the most for them, but it's unclear how a mileage tax would be enforced.

    The proposed tax would only apply to Virginia residents and not drivers living out of state, which some opponents say is not fair.
