This is a real disappointment. Here’s the on-line article from the Virginia Gazette, from this morning.
Scott Surovell has the first comments on his blog. I have not yet heard from the Governor (who did not make a comment in his opening speech to the Assembly), but I have to think that the report is true.
The new Governor’s position is a major mistake. There are two million people in Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William who are impacted as parents and taxpayers by this sudden and unprecedented reversal of a state formula.
Believe it or not, we believe that we should not be selectively discriminated against.
(quick update — I hear thru the State Capitol grapevine that the Gov has not made this decision yet, or at least is stating that to people. Still trying to read the tea leaves here.)
