WASHINGTON -- Gov. L. Douglas Wilder will host a symposium on Virginia's economic and fiscal outlook in Richmond tomorrow in an effort to brace state and local officials for slower economic growth than the state enjoyed during the early 1980s.

"The governor wants to get everyone to look cooperatively at the new reality of the 1990s -- moderate job growth and moderate revenue gains," said gubernatorial spokesman Glenn K. Davidson. "I think this is basically to tell [state and local officials] that our forecasts show that the '90s are not going to be anything like the '80s."
