Richmond, VA – Virginia's General Assembly reached its "Crossover Day" earlier this week, which is the point by which legislation other that budget matters had to have been approved by either the State Senate or the House in order to stay alive this session.
WMRA's Tom Graham was spending time at the state capitol again this week and spoke with Bob Leweke about the main focus in Richmond.
Charlottesville, VA – "Virginia needs to do more... much, much more for children with mental illness." That's the claim of a new statewide coalition calling itself the Campaign for Children's Mental Health.
The coalition is made up of more than a dozen advocacy and medical groups, including Voices for Virginia's Children, a non-profit that has won high praise from state lawmakers in recent years for work on a wide variety of children's issues.
