The House of Delegates is close to passing a new state song for the Commonwealth of Virginia, “Our Great Virginia,” and it’s exactly as you would expect a state song composed in the modern era to be: bland, unpoetic, inclusive, and completely risk-free for legislators. Hence, it’s likely to pass.
The House of Delegates Appropriations Committee passed a state budget that increases the salaries of state employees, balances the budget to address “shortfalls”, funds higher education initiatives and capital improvement projects at specific universities, and targets medical spending in lieu of expanding Medicaid.
Two district chairmen. Two days. There must be an RPV State Central meeting tomorrow.
