An attempt to punish the Frontier Culture Museum in Staunton has fallen short.
Delegate Allen Louderback pushed for $900,000 to be cut from the Museum's budget because of its plans to buy and move the Zirkle Mill in Shenandoah County. But Tuesday, the House's Appropriations Subcommittee for higher education turned down the request.
Officials with the Zirkle Mill Foundation say they are still hoping an agreement can be reached to keep the mill where it is.
