Arlington County and the city of Alexandria have approved their legislative priorities for the upcoming General Assembly session...

Ferguson said that Arlington supports Alexandria's desire for a statewide smoking ban, but that the County Board would be happy if the state allowed localities to limit smoking in their jurisdictions as "an interim step."

City Council member Krupicka said he thinks the General Assembly will focus on preschool initiatives, transportation -- including controversial abusive-driver fees -- immigration and budget shortfalls.
