Why am I first seeing this today?!?!

That was my reaction when I read this article: Virginia Supreme Court Rules that Giving Power to Tax to an Unelected Body is Unconstitutional

This morning (Feb. 29), the Virginia Supreme Court unanimously held that the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority (NVTA) is unconstitutional in Marshall v. NVTA.

The court found that the NVTA, created in 2002 and given the power to tax in 2007, exceeded its powers when it levied seven taxes on residents of Northern Virginia. The taxes will have to be refunded in their entirety.

Could this have precipitous effects through out the nation?
