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.
"It's not a discourtesy at all," Stosch told the newspaper. "It's an invitation to talk informally and then use the formal process of the reconvened session and then consider whatever amendments he proposes."
Senate Finance Chairman Walter A. Stosch, R-Henrico, said he hasn't determined whether his committee would consider budget amendments proposed by McAuliffe.
