RICHMOND, Va. (AP Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe has scheduled a news conference to outline his plans for the state budget recently passed by the General Assembly.

McAuliffe is set to address reporters Friday at the Capitol.

Lawmakers passed a two-year budget last week that did not include expanding Medicaid eligibility. McAuliffe and most Democratic lawmakers support expanding Medicaid.

The governor has not indicated whether he'll sign, veto or try to amend parts of the budget. He has until Sunday to decide.

The battle over Medicaid expansion led to a monthslong impasse over the budget that threatened a potential state government shutdown. The impasse was broken when a Democratic state senator abruptly resigned, giving Republicans control of both chambers in the General Assembly.
