RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia House Republicans say a budget stalemate could lead to $340 million in cuts to local school districts and a freeze on construction projects at state universities.

GOP leaders briefed reporters Wednesday at the Capitol on what could happen if the state can't access a rainy day fund because the General Assembly didn't pass a budget before July 1.

Republicans and Democrats are deadlocked on whether the state budget should include an expansion of the state's Medicaid program.

Both sides blamed each other Wednesday for the continued impasse.

State lawmakers are set to meet next week to discuss other potential budget cuts.
