Legislators set aside money to rebuild earthquake-damaged school

Here’s one thing that Virginia budget writers can agree on: They want to help rebuild Louisa County High School.


The Associated Press

The House of Delegates allocated $2 million to aid with construction. The Senate set aside $1 million.

The two chambers still have to reconcile those differences, but it remains a priority for both.

The House and Senate unveiled competing budgets Sunday, which included millions more for public schools, local governments and health-care providers, including hospitals, nursing homes and free clinics. But they disagreed on a variety of other issues, including taxes and fees, pension reform and education

In November, the Federal Emergency Management Agency approved Virginia’s request for aid to repair Louisa County schools damaged by the earthquake and subsequent aftershocks.
