    Is it even worth raising trail condition with VDOT, or it is a lost cause? I had a little "run in" with a road crew on the trail last summer. They thought it was appropriate to close the trail and...

    You still need 20 votes to pass the bill. There are 39 members of the Senate currently. Good luck getting four members to admit they blew it and change their votes.
