Democrats in the Virginia state Senate have halted one bill that would pave the way for the $2 billion proposed arena in Alexandria to be built after backlash to comments Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R-VA) made at a convention over the weekend.
State Senate Finance Committee Chairwoman Louise Lucas announced on Saturday that the chamber’s bill would not be placed on the committee’s agenda for its meeting on Monday, saying it was “not ready for prime time” and bashed Youngkin for not having respect for the legislature.
Governor’s Arena Bill is not on the Senate Finance and Appropriations docket because his proposal is not ready for prime time. This is what happens when Executive Branch doesn’t operate in good faith and doesn’t have respect for the Legislative Branch.
