William & Mary Charter Day
It's not everyday that you get to celebrate a 325th birthday! The College of William & Mary was chartered on February 8th, 1693, and I was so pleased to join in the festivities this weekend. Our very own Governor Northam became a Doctor of Public Service Honoris Causa. What a guy!

Crossover is Here!
In the General Assembly, we move pretty quickly to get everything done before all of us leave Richmond. Crossover is the important milestone meaning that all bills that have been approved by the House go over to the Senate and all bills approved by the Senate come over to the House. Today and tomorrow will be spent going over the remaining legislation in the House and gearing up to hear Senate bills. I am proud to have 4 bills that have passed the House and are headed over to the Senate! If they are successful there, the next stop is Governor Northam's desk!
Last week, huge strides were made in terms of the felony threshold. Legislation that I am a Chief Co-Patron on is making its way through the House and would raise the threshold from $200 to $500, a threshold that hasn't been updated since before I was born. An update on HB 181, which makes texting while driving that substantially diverts you from the road a crime: it will be voted on in the House tomorrow! Here's a story about what this legislation would mean. Opening up the court databases to make sure all branches of our state's government are transparent has been a huge priority of mine. I am so proud to have worked on legislation that has been unanimously passed out of the House and headed over the Senate to address this very issue. Read more about it here!
