The Virginia Senate just moments ago passed a budget amendment, offered by Governor Bob McDonnell, that protects Virginia's taxpayers from paying for elective abortions! The vote was 20-19, with three Democrats joining all present Republicans in support of the amendment. The House of Delegates passed the amendment earlier today by a wide margin.

More details will be provided soon. We are going to stay at the Capitol until the Senate adjourns, regardless of the hour, to ensure that nothing happens to this amendment.
