Next steps remain unclear for State Board of Education vacancies   
Reported by VPM News’ Megan Pauly  

The GOP-controlled House of Delegates has failed to confirm 11 Northam appointees to various state boards, including 3 members of the State Board of Education. One of those members was the only active K-12 teacher serving on the expert panel responsible for setting statewide education policy. The Youngkin administration did not respond to questions about why Swann and others were not recommended for confirmation. It’s also unclear how and when Gov. Glenn Youngkin plans to fill the vacancies.  

Some Democrats look to scale back overtime law they passed last year  
Reported by VPM News’ Ben Paviour.  

Last year, House Democrats cheered the passage of a bill that backers said would make it easier for employees who were denied their overtime wages to get relief in court. This year, the bill’s sponsor and a handful of other Democrats are joining Republicans in voting to scale back some of those rules.
