Gov. Bob McDonnell is urging legislators to make some tough choices to cut spending and restructure state government.
McDonnell said Wednesday night in his State of the Commonwealth speech that selling liquor is not a core government function, and that's why he has proposed privatizing state-run liquor stores. He said the move will raise $300 million for transportation.
The Republican governor also says he doesn't see radio and television programming as a worthwhile expenditure of $4 million in state funds.
He wants to end state funding for public broadcasting.
