A giant ash cloud from an Icelandic volcano will keep Virginia Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling from attending Wednesday's one-day legislative session.
Bolling has been in Italy since last week participating in an economic development symposium, where he spoke Tuesday.
His flight out of Florence, Italy, on Tuesday was canceled. Chief of staff Randy Marcus said after 30 hours of surveying the commercial, private and military travel possibilities, it appears Bolling will be able to arrive in Virginia on Thursday at the earliest.
The Republican lieutenant governor presides over the Senate and casts tie-breaking votes. Democratic Sen. Charles Colgan will take his place.
Legislators will take up 123 amendments Gov. Bob McDonnell made to bills during the session.
