The word on the budget is that the discussions are not proceeding swimmingly, and it looks like a vote on the budget will be on Tuesday rather than Saturday. PreK-12 funding remains a matter of contention.
The Roanoke City Labor Day waiver bill, HB1483, finally came to vote in the Senate today. At long and at last, HB1483 passed the Senate on a 22-18 vote. My hope is that this marks the beginning of the end of the Labor Day law in Virginia!
Please keep the pressure on the budget conferees to move toward the Senate position on PreK-12 funding.
