Top Va. budget cruncher hospitalized

Anita Kumar

When the House Appropriations Committee met Tuesday, a familiar face was conspicuously absent.

Staff director Robert Vaughn, one of the most powerful legislative staffers on Capitol Square, has been hospitalized in Richmond, House Clerk Bruce Jamerson has informed staff. Vaughn was hospitalized June 11 and doctors have diagnosed acute pancreatitis.

Vaughn has been a fixture at the committee for than two decades, and helps writes the state's two-year, $78 billion budget.

"Robert Vaughn ably leads an incredibly dedicated and hard-working staff at the House Appropriations Committee,'' said G. Paul Nardo, chief of staff to House Speaker Bill Howell (R-Stafford). "His absence is certainly missed and we look forward to having him back on the job as soon as his health and doctor permits."
