This is the natural result of having so many laws that the entire staff of the legislature can not keep up with them.

Democratic Gov. Mark Warner, who signed the bill into law, said he would support legislation in the January session that would fix the bill retroactively.

Does that mean those who are paid triple time between now and January have to give the money back?

But Kilgore spokesman Tim Murtaugh said that solution won't work either because the attorney general would essentially be asked not to enforce a law.

Why is this suddenly a problem for the government? There are literally hundreds of archaic, outdated, silly, unenforceable laws on the books that are not currently enforced.

Perhaps the best idea would be for the government to get out of the business of trying to run business (hmm… where have I heard that before?).
