RICHMOND, VA — Delegate David J. Toscano will conduct a Telephone Town Hall on Wednesday, February 19 beginning at 7:00 p.m. to discuss the proposed 2014-2016 budget. Toscano will be joined by Virginia’s Secretary of Finance Ric Brown.

“The most important action we take every two years is to pass our biennial budget,” said Toscano. “This town hall is an opportunity for people to learn about the budget and give me their input on Virginia’s funding priorities. In addition to the budget, I also hope to discuss and answer questions on other legislation that is before the General Assembly.”
In addition to Secretary Brown, Delegate Toscano will be joined by Dan Timberlake, Director of Virginia’s Department of Planning and Budget, as well as Mike Shook, Manager of the Health and Human Resources Division of the Department of Planning and Budget.
