Budget deal could be close

leave a comment »

Multiple reporters stationed at the Capitol, including NBC12’s Andy Jenks and The Washington Post’s Anita Kumar are hearing that a budget deal could come down sometime tonight. According to interview by WRVA radio‘s Matt Demline with Chesterfield Del. Kirk Cox, the deal could happen around 6pm tonight (Saturday). Cox said the two sides are only about $5 million apart. That is a remarkably small divide, considering the full budget is about $70 billion and the gap they needed to fill was $2 billion plus.

Andy will have a live report tonight on NBC12 news at 6. He is also tweeting updates as he gets them.

More, when we hear more.
