McAuliffe Vetoes LaRock’s Public Assistance Eligibility Legislation

Today, Governor Terry McAuliffe vetoed Del. Dave LaRock’s House Bill 2092, which would have required any applicant for public assistance to undergo a full review of death records, incarceration status, employment status, lottery winnings, and all income. Recently, an Arlington woman was arrested on four counts of welfare fraud for collecting over $100,000 in benefits – all while her husband was earning $1.5 million per year as an attorney in D.C.!

Millionaire on Welfare- Does McAuliffe Care?!?!

Last week, an Arlington woman was arrested on four counts of welfare fraud for collecting over $100,000 in benefits – all while her husband was earning $1.5 million per year as an attorney in D.C.! My HB 2092 requires any applicant for public assistance to undergo a full review of death records, incarceration status, employment status, lottery winnings, and all income. Gov. McAuliffe should sign my bill to help prevent this type of welfare fraud!

We adjourned sine die Saturday, completing our work on time.  This year, the House of Delegates worked tirelessly to strengthen Virginia’s economy to help middle class families, improve our education system so all children have the opportunity to succeed, and chart a responsible fiscal course for the future.  We continue to offer a positive governing vision for our Commonwealth.

Virginia Legislature Advances LaRock Amendment Resolution to Guard Transportation Funding

Seeking to address the need for stability in Virginia transportation funding, the House and Senate passed House Joint Resolution 693. The House finalized passage Saturday morning just one hour before the close of session with a vote of 71-23, accepting a minor amendment made by the Senate Privileges and Elections committee.  Passing this resolution is the first step in a three step process before an amendment to the Virginia Constitution can become law. Resolutions are not subject to veto by the governor. An amendment must pass the legislature in identical form in two consecutive sessions and then be approved by a simple majority of voters in a statewide referendum.
