Need more funding

We definitely need more funding. With inflation, the $1000 for Priority 1 and $500 for Priority 2/3 doesn't pay for much these days. And there is a greater need for this funding since our salaries have not increased with the cost of living. Surely if we could fund the building of a stadium in Alexandria, or a casino in Herndon/Tyson's, we allocate more to helping special needs families in Virginia. There's money in the budget!
