Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go Back to Richmond . . .

. . . the House of Delegates rejects the Senate’s budget amendments.

Good for them!  Glad to see the House Republicans holding the line on the Senate Dems’ extortionist spending add-ons, though, of course, the Dems will now try to paint them as the obstructionists.

That said, my guess is that a compromised budget will be worked out relatively quickly.  Why do I think that?  Simply put, these guys (and gals) have other things to do.  Like their real jobs.  Thank goodness for a part-time legislature.   Even with the occasional distraction of divisive social issues, the limited nature of the General Assembly really does force efficient use of the legislators’ time.
