Richmond, VA (WTVR) -- Virginia's top budget writing and oversight panel is questioning Governor Bob McDonnell's decision to cut a $6.5-million deal with the Washington Redskins.

The group is upset the Governor's administration did not talk with them first about a deal to give the Washington Redskins monetary incentives to bring their training camp to Richmond.

House appropriations committee chairman Lacey Putney says Governor McDonnell knew lawmakers opposed the incentives, but proceeded anyways.

Members of the Governor's administration were grilled during a meeting Monday morning, but refused to answer any questions.
