ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) - Construction begins Monday on a $1 billion revitalization project at Reagan National Airport. And it's likely to cause traffic headaches in the area. The Washington Post reports that the work will eventually produce a new concourse for short-hop flights and new security screening areas. But it will be a painful process requiring lane closures and traffic disruptions. Starting Monday, travel lanes will be closed overnight in the arrivals area of terminals B and C.
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Virginia's Republican-controlled House of Delegates is embracing Medicaid expansion after years of opposition. The House included Medicaid expansion in the proposed state budget Sunday, saying President Barack Obama's health care law is here to stay and that opposing expansion eligibility for about 400,000 low-income Virginians is no longer reasonable. Republicans want to mandate work requirements and cost-sharing for some Medicaid recipients.
