Miss Philicia:
1) Virginia Freezes ADAP Program

2) yet just yesterday there was an article on the front page of the Washington Post about the Republican governor rolling out a massive agenda due to Virginia being one of the few states that has a budget SURPLUS -- a $403 million surplus.

leatherman:
<sarcasm>why should they pay out 5% of their surplus to fund a program that they're only picking up 10% of the tab anyway? Think of the money they'll save by letting the Feds pay 100% of ADAP - not to mention they'll save all of that sweet, sweet surplus.</sarcasm>

sounds like the VA ASOs, and ADAP clients need to start having rallies, letter-writing campaigns, and making phone calls to see if they can get their legislators to save VA ADAP

wonder if this will cause a reduced FY2012 federal ADAP contribution to the state?
