As I mentioned a few days ago, the House Republicans have decided to cut $150 million in annual funding from Metro. This is a move that could have a devastating impact on Northern Virginia because so many people depend on the Metro to get to work. As Del. Scott Surrovell said during a speech on the floor of the House of Delegates, this isn't the only time the federal government hasn't properly funded projects that have an impact on NoVA's traffic. That's why Scott is joining Gerry Connolly in calling upon Governor McDonnell to use his connections with Republicans on the Hill to encourage the House of Representatives to restore funding to Metro.
