Delegate Jennifer McClellan joins Coy Barefoot on WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now for a General Assembly update. She and Coy discuss the potential collapse of the Republican’s transportation plan. At issue is the question of funding priorities. Should roads be built at the expense of education?

“Government’s number one priority is to keep its citizens safe,” says McClellan. “A second very high priority is to make all of our citizens have the tools they need to succeed.” Del. McClellan reminds listeners that transportation is more about moving people around than building roads.

McClellan is also active in the campaign to regulate pay-day loans by capping interest levels at 36 percent, and she updates Coy on where the legislation stands. She also talks about her bill to expand the registration periods for children to enter kindergarten. (HB1636)
