Roanoke Mayor David Bowers says the budget impasse in Richmond is not likely to have a significant impact on the city’s own budget planning — at least not now.  He says there are guidelines municipalities can employ to help predict how much state money will come in once there is a budget agreement in Richmond.  Bowers supports Governor McAuliffe’s efforts to expand Medicaid in Virginia,  an issue that has led to the budget deadlock. WFIR’s Evan Jones has the story.
