RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The House Appropriations Committee doesn't plan to consider any amendments offered by Gov.-elect Terry McAuliffe to Virginia's proposed two-year budget.
A senior Virginia state senator on Tuesday blasted a campaign ad from Democrat Terry McAuliffe as a misleading "example of self-puffery" — a development that comes as Mr. McAuliffe and Republican Attorney General Kenneth T. Cuccinelli II try to soften their public images early in the high-stakes gubernatorial contest.
In a press release, House Speaker William J. Howell, Stafford County Republican, and Senate Majority Leader Walter A. Stosch, Henrico Republican, said the ruling "reaffirms the judgment of those attorneys, in both the governor's office and the Office of the Attorney General, and other legal experts, who thoroughly and exhaustively reviewed the Comprehensive Transportation Funding and Reform Act of 2007."
"On July 19, Governor Kaine joined us for a news conference at which we jointly pledged to amend one aspect of this landmark legislation — applying it fairly and fixing excessive fees for relatively minor infractions,"
