McAuliffe Budget Swiftly Killed by House, Senate Adjourns for Two Weeks

In a busy first day in the General Assembly’s special session, Governor McAuliffe introduced a new budget, only to have it rejected hours later by the House of Delegates.  The Senate adjourned for two weeks.  The centerpiece of  McAuliffe’s budget is a two-year trial expansion of the state’s Medicaid program.  McAuliffe presented a letter from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services granting federal permission for a two-year pilot program with no penalty for cancellation.
