A local lawmaker has told fellow Republicans Governor McAuliffe does not understand how a budget gets adopted. Delegate Steve Landes says McAuliffe appears to believe there won’t be any harm from a current stalemate as long as the General Assembly adopts a budget before July 1st. Landes says Virginia does not use continuing resolutions and other legislative tricks to keep the government operating during a dispute. He says the current lack of a budget is a hardship for cities and counties that need to know how much money they will get from Richmond. Landes spoke during a monthy gathering of GOP activists. They displayed a poster (pictured) that urges the Governor and General Assembly Democrats to drop their demands for Medicaid expansion.
