State Senate Passes Budget

VirginiaSenateSealThe Virginia Senate has passed its version of the state budget for the next two fiscal years, which begin on July 1st.  Senators introduced the spending bill proposed by Governor McAuliffe, then added their own touches—including Marketplace Virginia, the private-insurance alternative to Medicaid expansion. But as Virginia Public Radio’s Anne Marie Morgan reports, by the end of the day the Senate and the House were no closer to resolving their budget stalemate.


To approve a budget, the same bill must pass both houses of the General Assembly—or one bill must be sent to a conference committee.  House conferees said the Senate needs to take action on the House budget before the process can move forward.
