Governor McDonnell's revisions to the state's two-year budget target modest spending increases.
Secretary of Finance Rick Brown says overall, the budget spends about $211 million more than it cuts.
“The governor announced major proposals in transportation, in K-12, more adjustments for higher education.” Brown said Monday.
The governor's midpoint amendments for year two of the $80 billion budget include $93 million in savings state agency chiefs recommended for their departments.
