Stewart's got a Web thing going. He promises the full text of the measure will be coming soon. For now, you can tell that it's a lot like Arizona's law. Its first point: "Direct Virginia law enforcement officials to ascertain, in any lawful contact, the legal presence of an individual, when practicable."
