Senate Democrats Fail to Pass Virginia’s Two Year Budget

-House Republicans Continue to Urge Senate Democratic Caucus to Show Leadership and Work to Finalize State’s Finances–

Richmond, Virginia– Yesterday, Senate Democrats collectively voted to kill House Bill 30, the House of Delegate’s version of the 2012-2014 budget bill, which establishes the state’s finances for two years. Last week, Senate Democrats blocked passage of the Senate’s budget bill. House Bill 30 passed the House of Delegates last week with bipartisan support by a vote of 79-21 and was sent over to the Senate for hearing. Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter of the 31st District released the following statement:

“It is appalling to hear that Senate Democrats have refused to sit down at the table, roll up their sleeves, and work with the House on crafting a fiscally responsible budget for the Commonwealth. We all make promises while campaigning and one of those promises is to come to Richmond and do what is best on behalf of our constituents and the Commonwealth. Refusing to even sit down at the table to work on the budget is a breaking of that promise and a violation of the trust that our constituents instill in us.”

“The General Assembly no longer has a budget to act upon.   Both Republicans and Democrats worked to craft a responsible and structurally sound budget in the House and we passed it because we know how important the $85 billion budget is to Virginians- it funds the salaries of our hardworking teachers and police officers, provides for medical treatment, builds roads, and keeps the state running. But instead, Senate Democrats have decided to fight harder for the 20 people of their Senate caucus rather than the over 8 million people of Virginia.”

Delegate L. Scott Lingamfelter is a retired U.S. Army Colonel who was first elected to represent the 31st District in 2001. He recently won reelection to the House of Delegates in November, 2011. The 31st District includes parts of Prince William County and Fauquier County
