A look at the Peninsula delegation's wish list, however, also shows how little wiggle room there is in budget writing.

Another big ticket change is the $38 million a year boost that Pogge and state Sen. Mamie Locke, D Hampton, propose with separate suggestions that the state use a different estimate for inflation for calculating the help schools receive for utilities, fuel and health insurance expenses.

That request, like her request for community corrections funding and the hundreds of others that other legislators filed, offer a look into the extent to which state government touches Virginians' Nike Air Vapormax Black Anthracite

on Peninsula legislators' minds are schools, mental health and services for youth.

She's convinced those alternatives to a stay in a juvenile detention center really work.

When Hayes Press came up to Richmond for Mental Health Advocacy Day last month, hoping to make legislators understand the need for a drop in center in Williamsburg, he knew he had an ally behind the scenes. Pogge had already put in a budget amendment, seeking $2.5 million over the next to years to fund one.

Basically, the center would be a place for people in a crisis to go and get treatment and for police to take people in a mental health crisis instead of hauling them off to jail.

He wants to restore $48 million cut from state education department's Virginia PreSchool initiative because some local school systems weren't filling all the slots the state was funding.

"I know it doesn't sound like a Republican thing," he says.

Pogge, who hosted 15 foster kids over an eight year period before her fourth child's birth, wants to boost the Virginia Juvenile Community Crime Control Act by $4 million over the next two years. That $47.4 million program funds a wide range of services such as substance abuse screening, anger management and parenting classes and electronic monitoring intended to keep kids in trouble with the law from getting into worse trouble.

Now that the door has closed for requests, it's time for legislators to make the trek up to the ninth and 10th floor offices of the General Assembly money committees to argue their cases.

When it comes to the biggest bucks, what's Nike Vapormax R

with the foster care program is proof, she says. Only one of the kids ended up doing prison time as an adult. And now that he's out, she's hoping with reason, she thinks that he'll keep on a better path he's started to follow.

State Sen. Thomas K. "Tommy" Norment Jr., R James City, has a slew of suggestions that include a $2 million a year boost in funding for the Virginia Legal Services Corp., which provides legal aid to low income Virginians. Legal aid offices have cut 30 attorneys and closed a center in Emporia because of funding cuts since 2008.

"But that can't take care of all the need."

Virginia General Assembly: Budget amendments give glimpses of needSome of the foster kids who lived with Del. Brenda Pogge, R James City, as an alternative to a stretch in a juvenile detention center still stay in touch, years later.

Del. Jeion Ward, D Hampton, wants the state to step in to make up for lost grant money to implement a state Department of Aging and Rehabilitative Services program that offers respite for family caregivers, with $800,000 of funding over the next two years.

Not everyone is taking the hint from the chairman of the state Senate Finance Committee, Walter Stosch, R Henrico, that his committee looks a lot more benevolently on requests to boost spending that come with offsetting suggestions about where to cut.

The main reason? Nobody in the legislature or in Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office will whisper the dreaded word: taxes.

One of the biggest changes any Peninsula legislator proposes is one from state Sen. John Miller, D Newport News.

lives and the extraordinary, detailed control the budget exerts over what state and local officials do.

Most of the amendments propose tweaks of $100,000 or less but some exceed $1 million.

Pogge's memories sparked one of the hundreds of ideas Virginia legislators pick up in their lives outside of Capitol Square that are cataloged in more than 1,200 pages of requests by state legislators for tweaks to the budget.

But legal aid, though often a target of Washington conservatives, provides a vital service to low income Virginians who need help with everything from consumer rip offs to domestic abuse to challenges getting health care and decent housing.

Miller has also proposed another $2.1 million to expand a pilot program for reading specialists at schools where less than half the third grade pupils pass state Standards of Learning assessments.
