RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia lawmakers are set to reconvene in Richmond to vote on a compromise state budget.
The spending plan up for a vote Wednesday would offer billions in tax relief, increase pay for teachers and other public employees, and fund a wide range of projects from roadwork to school construction.
Lawmakers will be back at the Capitol in a special session because they deadlocked over the spending plan as their regular calendar drew to a close in March.
They opted then to extend talks, which have been happening privately among a handful of negotiators.
Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin says the compromise offered a “good framework” and is urging lawmakers to pass it quickly.
