Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back to Richmond . . .
. . . the House of Delegates rejects the Senate’s budget amendments.
Good for them! Glad to see the House Republicans holding the line on the Senate Dems’ extortionist spending add-ons, though, of course, the Dems will now try to paint them as the obstructionists.
That said, my guess is that a compromised budget will be worked out relatively quickly. Why do I think that? Simply put, these guys (and gals) have other things to do. Like their real jobs. Thank goodness for a part-time legislature. Even with the occasional distraction of divisive social issues, the limited nature of the General Assembly really does force efficient use of the legislators’ time.
