Virginia House and Senate Negotiators Agree on Budget

According to the Washington Times:

Legislative budget negotiators finally came to terms on a new bare-bones budget for the cash-strapped state government early Sunday.
The two sides shook hands on a $70 billion two-year austerity spending plan around 1 a.m. It includes the most dramatic cuts to state services and programs in modern Virginia.
The full House and Senate were expected to take up the budget in a final vote before adjournment late Sunday afternoon, one day behind schedule.
