Virginia House to Reconvene Next Week for Budget Work

Posted: May 25, 2018 8:37 AM Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- The Virginia House of Delegates plans to reconvene next week with plans to finalize a state budget.
           
GOP Speaker Kirk Cox announced Thursday that the House would gavel in on May 30.
           
Cox canceled a House meeting earlier this week after the Senate delayed a vote Tuesday on the state budget. GOP Senate leaders said they needed another week to study a new budget proposal that includes Medicaid expansion.
           
The Senate is set meet May 29, and Senate Majority Leader Tommy Norment said he expects a budget to pass.
           
The disagreement over Medicaid expansion has led to a lengthy stalemate on the state budget.
           
State government will shut down July 1 if no budget is passed.
