"RICHMOND - Senate Republicans killed off this year's minimum wage increase request Monday, shooting down a Democratic bill to increase the floor to $10.10 an hour over the next two-and-a-half years.

The vote was 11-3 to lay the bill aside for the rest of this legislative session, a motion offered by Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. "Tommy" Norment, R-James City.

Senate Bill 681 would have increased the minimum wage in Virginia to $8 an hour come July 1. It would take the rate up to $9 an hour next year and to $10.10 as of July 1, 2017."
