Those lucky enough to get through to Jefferson Center this morning for Sheryl Crow tickets can look forward to her July 31st concert at the new Elmwood Park amphitheater.

Governor Terry McAuliffe’s Statement on the Budget Impasse:
Over the past two months, I have traveled across the Commonwealth and met with hardworking Virginians who are caught in the health care coverage gap. These are people who do not qualify for Medicaid, but cannot afford health insurance on the federal exchange. These Virginians, as well as local business leaders, healthcare providers, and public safety officials have urged Virginia’s elected officials to put partisan politics aside and close the coverage gap. But as of today, our legislature is nearly five weeks past their deadline of passing a budget. As the body responsible for negotiating a budget, the General Assembly has failed to deliver on one of the primary duties they were elected to fulfill.
