      McDonnell Makes Final Budget Pitch to Lawmakers

      Richmond, VA - Part of Governor McDonnell's budget proposal includes additional money for mental health, public safety, and public education.

      The Governor's spending priorities for the two-year state budget total nearly $10 billion more than the previous one.

      There are no tax or fee increases and deposits to the state's so-called "rainy day" fund will bring it to a billion dollars by 2016.

      This is the last budget McDonnell will present to lawmakers, before leaving office in January.
