General Assembly Adjourns Without Adopting New Budget

Members of the House of Delegates and State Senate left Richmond Saturday without adopting Virginia’s next two-year budget. House Speaker Bill Howell (pictured) and the rest of the General Assembly will come back in two weeks. The GOP-controlled House and the Democratically-controlled Senate will return on March 24th to resume their debate over a two-year spending plan. The major bone of contention is the expansion of Medicaid under the federal health-care law that many call Obamacare. General Assembly veterans hope the session won’t be a repeat of 2004, when a battle over taxes prevented the adoption of a new budget until mid-spring.
