This election day, Virginians will vote on a bond referendum that higher education officials hope will allow them to expand college and university facilities around the state. But is a bond issue the best—or even a satisfactory—way for a state to fund advanced learning? Host Sarah McConnell explores the issue with college presidents Paul Trible (Christopher Newport University) and Eugene Trani (Virginia Commonwealth University).

Also featured: Voters in Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads will decide whether to raise their sales tax to pay for transportation improvements. Political analysts Bob Holsworth (Virginia Commonwealth University) and Quentin Kidd (Christopher Newport University) examine this initiative and others that will appear on the November 5th ballot.
