Twenty-eight Virginia school divisions are getting a break on what they owe the state.
Governor Tim Kaine says Virginia saved more than $28 million by refinancing Public School Authority bonds. The savings will be given to localities as a one-time credit against their payment next July.
Prince William County will see the biggest savings, more than $5 million. Stafford County's credit will be more than $3 million. Loudoun County will save approximately $430,000. The Literary Fund will also benefit, receiving more than $4 million in savings.
The credits come in the midst of budget pressures at the state and county levels. Kaine says his administration will continue to look for refinancing opportunities.
