The “Skinny” on Virginia’s Budget
March 24, 2023
The 2023 General Assembly Session adjourned exactly a month ago and, among the many items that the House and Senate failed to agree on, a full budget did not come to fruition this year. After much deliberation between the Republican House and Democratic Senate, the decision was made to pass a “skinny” version of the budget—which was a really nice way of agreeing to disagree.
The skinny budget that was passed is a short-term agreement that adopts funding to address four items deemed by both sides of the aisle as being urgent and necessary to the Virginia budget.
Media reports indicate that budget negotiators intend to continue working toward agreement on a larger and more robust budget, and the governor indicated a willingness to continue to work with the legislature to finalize a budget.
As it stands, no dates have been provided for any further resolution. And that’s the “skinny”… for now!
