  RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Without notice, Virginia's divided state Senate has taken up and quickly passed an $85 billion, two-year budget.
 
     The 21-19 vote in favor of a budget conference report came a day after the Senate voted against the bill for the third time. Before the vote on Wednesday, Democratic leaders huddled together considering their options as the political fallout settled in.
 
     The vote for a new budget came 10 1/2 weeks before the current budget expires June 30
 
     The budget bill now goes to Gov. Bob McDonnell for consideration.
