The Northern Virginia Daily's Political Depot

A service for our readers outside the Northern Shenandoah Valley... a sampling of The Daily's political coverage, plus unofficial, 'reporter's notebook' stuff. And occasional dry humor...

In Session: Day 1

Now that the House of Delegates and Senate have organized themselves, the Senate has taken a break to let the House hash out their disagreement over the rules, in particular the change in how committee seats are handed out. They're due back any time now.

Meanwhile, the Patrick Henry Building is nice to look at, but small. Very, very small. Communication between the two chambers this year will take about 20 steps, provided the members can get around the crowds in the small, shared lobby. It's an interesting opening day.
