My legislative priorities are based on my belief in Constitutionally-limited government and the understanding that the primary role of government is to protect our God-given rights. I try to make sure all my legislation focuses on protecting our rights and reforming government so that it provides essential services in an efficient manner.

        Non-Legislation Priorities and Activities

        Besides these bills I introduced, I am always working on other issues of importance. Some of these are summarized below:

        • I continued working to bring transparency and accountability to the Dulles Rail Project to protect Virginia taxpayers and Dulles Toll Road users.
        • Working to re-open the Purcellville DMV Select after circumstances beyond state control caused a temporary shut down. I am also working with DMV to expand services.
        • I worked to inform residents and our local elected officials on the dangers of tying our state budget to Medicaid expansion, and I continue to oppose Obamacare Medicaid expansion in Virginia.
        • When our Virginia Attorney General refused to defend the Constitution and laws of Virginia, I signed letters, cosponsored legislation, and urged supporters to file complaints with the Virginia Bar.
        • I fought for a permanent solution to the long-festering issue of safe, reliable water in Raspberry Falls and Selma Estates communities in Loudoun County - and we won!
        • My staff and I have participated in numerous community meetings regarding the Heroin epidemic.
        • Improving transportation by ensuring that only the best projects will receive funding- no more money wasted on political pork projects that don't reduce congestion! More on this here.
