McAuliffe to Reveal Budget Plans Friday

1 min read


McAuliffe_Terry_smallVirginia Governor Terry McAuliffe has scheduled a news conference to release his plans for the state budget passed by the General Assembly.

McAuliffe will address members of the press on Friday.

Lawmarkers passed the two-year budget last week that forgoes Medicaid elibility expansion and McAuliffe and other Democratic lawmakers are in full support of the expansion.

The governor has not yet indicated if he will amend, sign or veto sections of the budget, holding out until Sunday to decide.

Expanding Medicaid has created a monthslong rift over the budget that almost brought about a state government shutdown.

The rift was closed when a Democratic state senator resigned, allowing Republicans to take the power back of both chambers within the General Assembly.
