As I returned home Friday afternoon, it was very uplifting to hear President Trump's remarks at the March for Life rally. Even pro-lifers suspicious of Trump have to admire his March for Life speech. It is undeniable that on the issues dear to the hearts of life and family leaders, President Trump has been consistent.
As Democrats press to repeal laws which keep men, women, and children safer, they are also bent on putting violent criminals back on the streets and tormenting victims in the process. Here's the link to A MUST SEE VIDEO on YouTube.
I remain focused on passing meaningful legislation in the House of Delegates despite a slow start on the part of the Democratic leadership. I am working to lower Greenway tolls and improve broadband in rural areas. I’m happy to report good progress.
Here is a list of all my filed bills.
With a record number of bills and a slow pace starting out, now we’re moving at a brisk pace with numerous overlapping obligations daily. Here are a few of my bills which had hearings in the last few days.
My Family Life Education bill to promote parental involvement did not pass.
My Repeal of the Church Gun Ban did not pass even with the recent shooting in Texas that was ended quickly by a church member.
My Stop Gun Free Zones in Public Buildings did not pass this week. Democrats heard testimony from Jason Nixon, who lost his wife in the Virginia Beach massacre. Kate Nixon was told that in order to keep her job, she had to give up her right to self-defense. She chose her job and it cost her life in a government imposed Gun-Free-Zone.
Traffic Incident Management Vehicles, a bill to help clear highway accidents quickly, is moving along on the House side.
My School Divisions of Innovation bill to start rolling back SOL testing and replacing with performance-based testing is moving forward.
I Presented Budget Amendments proposing to move monies marked my the Governor for gun confiscation and Red Flag law enforcement to instead support increased mental health care and other services that will make people safer.
You can find a complete list of my legislation HERE and my amendments to Virginia’s budget HERE.
