A proposed small procedural change to a legislative commission may be the starting point of a compromise that ends a months-long impasse over the Virginia state budget.
A Virginia legislator is renewing his push to allow castration of sex offenders as an alternative to the increasing costs of detaining and treating them after they've served their prison sentence.
Hanger said in a statement that he hopes his proposal will allow lawmakers to "move quickly to final passage of a budget and preserve Virginia's record of fiscal responsibility."
Sen. Emmett Hanger, an Augusta Republican, said Americans For Prosperity sent "slick" campaign-style mailers to his constituents last year urging them to call Hanger and tell him to reconsider his support for expanded Medicaid eligibility.
