March Madness in Richmond
Today is the last day for each half of the General Assembly to reject the other's budget and ask for a conference. That happened earlier today, leaving time for talk about state songs, Interstate highways, the death penalty and other such things, as well as talk about Gov. Tim Kaine's chief of staff.
Watch this space for more frenetic legislative action later today.
