We are very pleased to announce that two legislators, Delegate Dave Marsden (D-41, Burke) and Senator Frank Wagner (R-7, Virginia Beach) have agreed to question-and-answer blog interviews here. One Democrat, one Republican. One delegate, one senator. Fair and balanced. The interview with Delegate Marsden is completed and will be posted here later today. The interview with Senator Wagner will be conducted after "crossover." Originally, we hoped to have both completed and posted on our Virtual Lobby Day last Thursday. But the pace of session and the massive consumption of time — lawmakers can be on the floor until late into the night — requires adjusting plans.

We are very grateful to both lawmakers and their staffs for accomodating us during such a busy time, and very much look forward to reading for ourselves their responses to our questions. We think you will too.
