Govvernor Mark Warner is expected to meet with state legislators later today to discuss the commonwealth's financial status. The Governor may provide more details on how he intends to deal with a billion dollar budget shortfall. Senior Republican lawmakers say this will probably set the stage for several months of budget negotiations between the G-O-P run assembly and the Democratic governor.

Another day and no trace of Jennifer Short.
Local, state and federal authorities are trying to find the fourth grader, who disappeared last week when her parents were shot and killed in Henry County.
Though the nationwide Amber Alert has generated calls from across the country, solid leads remain in short supply.

Kimberly, I'd have to say status quo. The morning should bring us another briefing from Sheriff Frank Cassell, but we aren't expecting the major break that everyone here has been hoping for.

Governor Warner delivers the commonwealth's latest financial news to state legislators later today .. and he may provide more details on how he intends to deal with it. By all accounts, the budget shortfall will total at least one billion dollars. Senior Republican lawmakers say this will probably set the stage for several months of budget negotiations between the G-O-P- run assembly and the Democratic governor.
