I’m sitting in the empty Senate Chamber. Sen. Mark Herring (D-Loudoun) is the only other one here. Answering emails and catching up on “real” work. The pages have all gone home and this place is dead quiet.
At 4 pm, we have a briefing on the “conference report” for the state budget (HB 1600). That will take 1-2 hours. I expect that we will vote on the budget tonight as well as any remaining conference reports. Stay tuned.
Update at 9 pm
We have voted on the budget. Passed out 35-5. We are waiting on some final judicial appointment. Then the session is officially over. Time to head home.
Update at 10 pm.
Okay, now it’s over. See you back home.
