Today in the Richmond Times Dispatch, Gov. Elect Bob McDonnell wants to change the way Virginia handles its two year budget process. Currently, the budget is constructed in such a way that a new governor has little time upon taking office to change the budget proposal already submitted by the leaving governor. This issue has plagued new governors as they took office and has caused a countless loss of efficiency in our state government. The article points out that Gov. Wilder, Warner, and Kaine all wanted to change the budget process as well.
