Virginia’s legislators will have a number of contentious issues to debate when they return to Richmond this week to convene the 2017 legislative session. While some controversial bills are likely to catch media attention, like proposed legislation that would ban abortions after 20 weeks, legislators will likely spend much of the session going back and forth on where to cut state spending.

Kojo explores the big stories to watch out of Richmond.
