Play associated audio

Virginia's Governor Tim Kaine is expected to reduce his state's revenue projections yet again. State legislators tell the Associated Press that Virginia's state budget will come up $1.3 billion dollars short. Governor Kaine will make the announcement later this morning. This is the fourth time in a year that the Governor has been forced to reduce the estimate for tax and fee collections that support such core state functions as public safety and education. Based on the new revenue figures, Kaine is finalizing a new list of cuts, savings, and consolidations he's expected to announce by early September.
