Strategy for the Budget Conference Committee

February 25, 2012

Developing a strategy for dealing with the FY13-14 Budget is challenging because the Senate has yet to pass a budget (with 20 Ds and 20 Rs, neither side can garner the 21 votes needed).  The Board did agree on a message to the conferees based on the amendments reported out on February 19th — the text is posted with the Legislative Plan.  Contact any of the House Conferees:
  • Lacey Putney – Bedford
  • Kirk Cox – Colonial Heights
  • Beverly Sherwood – Frederick
  • Steve Landes – Augusta
  • Chris Jones – Suffolk
  • Johnny Joannou – Portsmouth
Contact information can be found at the General Assembly website.
