Transportation Funding Brouhaha

There's a growing divide between the Warner administration and the House of Delegates leadership over transportation funding proposed for the next biennial budget (fiscal 2007-2008). Republicans are concerned that Warner wants to yank $290 million in funding for transportation. The Warnerites say the House 'Pubs are jumping to conclusions. The House 'Pubs insist they're not. It's all quite confusing, probably a reflection of arcane insider maneuvering in anticipate of the upcoming budget bruiser between the House and Senate over transportation funding n the 2006 session.

We're following the flap over on the Bacon's Rebellion blog.
