In case you missed it, Governor Tim Kaine has announced major cuts to keep up with the Commonwealth’s revenue problem. Our Rob Richardson is all over the story for our early evening newscasts. I am picking the story up for our late news. I am taking a closer look at the cuts, including where they are coming from and what could happen to the employees impacted.
You can get a complete look at Governor Kaine’s plan here.
Not to completely make this post devoid of politics. One wonders if Governor Kaine is happy he isn’t on the campaign trail now, so he can be here in Richmond dealing with this problem. Or would he rather be on the ticket clearly in the driver’s seat in a position to take him far away from the problems of the state’s fiscal mess?
