View story in The News & Advance...Just a few months after visiting Lynchburg to answer questions about politics, education and the economy ahead of the General Assembly, Virginia legislators returned to the Hill City to give their thoughts on the most recent session.

Sen. Steve Newman, R-Bedford County; Sen. Mark Peake, R-Lynchburg; Del. Scott Garrett, R-Lynchburg; and Del. Ben Cline, R-Rockbridge, spoke at the Lynchburg Regional Business Alliance’s Pancakes & Politics Legislative Wrap-Up Breakfast at the Hancock Welcome Center on the Liberty University campus.

The breakfast was attended by about 90 area business people.

Though the General Assembly session ended last month, lawmakers still are tasked with passing a budget of more than $100 million and will aim to finish work on the budget during a special session April 11 so a government shutdown can be avoided.
