HALIFAX, Va. - A Virginia delegate's plan to end a tied votes on the Halifax County Board of Supervisors isn't happening this year.

The bill was virtually killed Monday. 

The senate returned it to the Committee for Local Government which doesn't meet again this year.

Delegate James Edmunds tells us four board members sent a letter to another Virginia senator requesting the bill be removed saying this was a local issue.

The bill would have added a ninth member to the board, ending a tie vote to elect a chairman and other county issues.
