Delegate Lacey Putney has seen a lot of General Assembly sessions. Putney first set foot on the floor of the House of Delegates in 1962. He is currently chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.
Putney spoke last month at the Bedford Area Chamber of Commerce’s legislative wrap-up breakfast, held at the Welcome Center.
The past General Assembly session was a tough one. Putney said that legislators were looking at a $4.2 billion revenue shortfall when they convened.
