McAuliffe Says Congress Needs a Real Budget

Last week Congress temporarily avoided large reductions in federal funding that remove billions of dollars in defense and other areas right here in Virginia, but Governor Terry McAuliffe says the hard work is yet to be done.

The cuts are still pending but the deadline was moved from October 1st to December 11th.

For now in the absence of a new budget, Congress is keeping the country running on a continuing resolution.

Governor McAuliffe says these CR’s don’t help Governors across the country.
