By Virginia House of Delegates

Joseph Yost, a delegate in the Virginia House of Delegates, spoke to a budget amendment supporting the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute on February 23, 2012. “I would encourage the House to support this amendment,” he said. “This amendment provides approximately $1.5 million over the next two years for the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute located in Roanoke. They are doing some stellar and amazing research in brain science and they were recently featured on The Today Show this morning for the work they’re doing. So again I would encourage the House to support this amendment.”
