The Virginia Statehouse

The Virginia Statehouse

Republicans are entering the 2018 legislative session with a razor-thin majority in the General Assembly while Democrats have a newly-elected governor on their side. As Virginians ask what the new political climate of the Commonwealth’s legislature could mean, we discuss the agenda they will take on, which includes the debate over dedicated Metro funding, partisan visions for the commonwealth’s budget, expansion of Medicaid, workplace development, and response to opioid abuse.

Guests

  • Mallory Noe-Payne Richmond reporter for Radio IQ and Virginia Public Radio
