Synopsis >

Virginia weighed in on a long-standing dispute between South Korea and Japan Thursday. The state's House of Delegates voted 81-15 to approve a two-line bill that requires all school text books approved by the Board of Education to now refer to the body of water separating the two countries not only as the Sea of Japan, but also by its Korean name, the East Sea. 'So we're making sure it adds on East Sea, sort of co-branding on that body of water.'
