  • A particularly wretched move by the Governor:

    Some lawmakers said one Youngkin amendment pitted supporters of historically Black colleges and universities against undocumented immigrant students who were born in this country. It proposed to shift $10 million a year in aid for so-called dreamers to Virginia State University and Norfolk State University.

    Youngkin proposed the amendment to shift the money even though the budget included $50 million in unspent funds, counting $32 million his administration had found.

    via Senate deals blows to Youngkin on gas tax, abortion funding; he gets partial win on lab schools
