  1. Here's a great website that talks about politics in Virginia.
  2. A bill that would raise the minimum wage to $10/hr in July and to $15/hr in 2021 is going to get a full vote in the state senate.
  3. Related to Medicaid expansion: A federal judge has struck down the entire ACA
  4. It appears that the Medicaid expansion will draw more enrollees than initially projected.
  5. Apparently, Virginia has a liquor ratio law for restaurants where they can't have too high of a percentage of their income come from liquor. Lawmakers are apparently working on a bill that would end that law.
  6. Kinda related to Virginia politics, but Amazon has decided to split it's 2nd HQ between Northern Va and NYC. Here's what's in Virginia's deal with Amazon.
  7. The Dems took the House, but the GOP keeps the Senate. Here's the results from Virginia.
  8. I knew that Tim Kaine was being projected to be re-elected to the Senate with a fairly healthy margin of victory, but I'm surprised that RCP has his average polling MoV at around 18.5%
  9. Seems like Wise is starting to turn it around. They've won back-to-back games and are now 3-4 on the season In addition, ETSU just defeated the Citadel to go to 6-1.

  11. Apparently, the work requirement and premium payment requirement may not be implemented when Medicaid is officially expanded next year.
  12. It's gonna be Flaccavento vs Griffith next month. Do you think it will be a blowout like in 2012? Will the Democrats retake the House and/or Senate?
  13. Both chambers of the GA have very slim leads for the GOP: 51-49 for the HoD 21-19 for the state senate
  14. What would you propose as a solution to this? Mine would be a nonpartisan, independent commission on redistricting
  15. There's some controversy over new legislative district maps in Virginia.
  16. UVA-Wise got their first shutout as an NCAA D2 member today against Urbana, winning 17-0.

  20. Great win today for the Cavs. Hopefully, they can take care of the turnover problem that they have been having for these past few games. Looks like Bernard and Cousin are gonna be a formidable duo for the next few years.
  21. I'm puzzled about UVA-Wise's new football helmet design. The one from last year was fine with the V logo.

  23. For me, I break it up to the two football subdivisions: FBS and FCS. For FCS, I'm a fan of JMU, because I originally planned on attending there, but ultimately didn't go in favor of Wise. For FBS, I'm a bit unsure between UVA and VT. I tend to root for the entire athletic program, instead of just which university has the better team for each individual sport.
  24. Not sure that the AD has been around for even a year, so I'm not frustrated yet. I'm guessing that the emphasis right now for the college is academics and economic development, which is admirable and ultimately should be the forefront of the college.
  25. After reading the study again, it definitely seemed like it had a pro-union slant toward it. I probably should have went with a study that didn't have nearly as much of a slant (either way).
