Governor McAuliffe has unveiled his requests for lawmakers who are working on a new state budget.  He has made expanding publicly funded health insurance for the poor and disabled a top priority, but the proposal is staunchly opposed by the GOP-controlled House of Delegates. McAuliffe (pictured) wants lawmakers to give him the authority to expand Medicaid eligibility on his own if a legislative commission doesn’t act by the end of the 2014 General Assembly.  He’s also proposing an additional $3 million for the state police to spend on vehicles and aircraft.
