Good news – 10 delegates and a senator have already signed on to HB 12, which will protect Virginia’s reciprocity with 25 states from AG Herring’s attempt to slash concealed carry rights! Herring’s illogical angle of attack on gun rights – going after concealed carry holders, who have astoundingly low crime rates – shows that he’s not interested in protecting citizens, but in scoring political points and advancing an agenda that will result in the right to carry being eliminated. Let’s stop him cold!
Weeks before the election, our Governor’s office announced its plan to enact massive new tolls on I-66 – up to $17 for a round trip – and to use that revenue in ways that would not help alleviate congestion at all. While the rollout of this plan may have been relatively quiet, in the ensuing days and weeks reactions became a thunderstorm of outrage. Officials who initially favored the plan turned around and opposed it – along with almost every prominent candidate, Republican or Democrat. That’s what happens when people like you are kept in the loop.
Governor McAuliffe hasn’t abandoned his plan – in fact, he’s doubled down, strong-arming local transportation officials into signing off on it and rejecting attempts to modify his toll fiasco into something less un-palatable.
I’m working on legislation that should stop this plan for good, and prevent it from happening in the future.
Please keep in touch and keep us in your prayers.
