Lawmakers will return to Richmond later this month for another stab at adopting a new two-year budget. The biggest bone of contention is Medicaid expansion, which Democrats want to include in Virginia’s spending plan. Albemarle Delegate Rob Bell (pictured) and other House Republicans say that strategy will not work. Bell favors reforming the Medicaid system before Virginia considers any expansion. The General Assembly will reconvene on March 24th. He was a Thursday guest on the Schilling Show.
