Last weekend the House and Senate budget committees presented their amendments to the (Governor’s) introduced budget bills. By the end of this week, the House and Senate had debated some amendments and passed their own budgets off the floor. But there will still be lots of negotiations before a single budget can be pieced together from the Governor’s budget and the House and Senate versions.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK, Virginia’s first Black woman to chair the powerful Finance Committee says as she presents her budget amendments: “Because of my experiences, I hold the areas of education and public safety close to my heart. People of my generation, Black and white alike, were unable to attend school during Massive Resistance, and I want to make sure that no child is ever denied the ability to have a quality public education or denied the ability to grow up in a safe and supportive community.”
