Technology and tourism are the hallmarks of Governor Jim Gilmore's record-setting, 48-BILLION dollar two year budget.
He presented it this morning to the joint money committees of the General Assembly.
[Double Boxes=Keith & Ellen/Microwave]


Ellen Qualls is in our Richmond newsroom.
How was this budget greeted?
[Live=Ellen Full/Microwave]
[SUPER=@Ellen1;]
[SUPER=05-Richmond;]


With some confusion actually, Keith.
The Gilmore administration has chosen to include federal grant money and tobacco money into the budget in a way that lawmakers aren't quite sure where the money would come from in the future.
And the Governor stole his own thunder and a lot of the money two years ago, with the swift passage of his billion dollar a year "no car tax" plan.
So despite a booming state revenue picture, today's budget was short on thrills.
