General Assembly Reveals Budgets

The House of Delegates and the Senate are out with budget bills for both the current and upcoming biennia.

Both Republican-controlled chambers are promoting their bills as conservative and sustainable spending plans.

During budget presentations Sunday (2/21), Senate Majority Leader and Finance Committee co-chair, Tommy Norment, said the smaller groups took their time deliberating how to best use state dollars.

The House of Delegates also reigned in the governor’s proposals slashing medicaid expansion, while providing additional dollars for education investment.
