Va. House restores some school funds for Northern Virginia

The House of Delegates voted this week to add $24 million to its proposed budget to help Northern Virginia schools attract staff in that expensive job market.

In the budget plan it approved Sunday, the state House Appropriations Committee did not include the funds either. But the full House voted Thursday to restore $24 million of that money.

The Senate Finance Committee had agreed to restore $42 million. But that chamber, evenly split between Republicans and Democrats, failed to pass its budget Thursday.
