Hello from Home!
My favorite meetings are with constituents -- come on by if you're in Richmond!
Notes From the Capitol
As we kick off our second full week here in Richmond, I wanted to let you know how the first full week turned out! I met with constituents, listened to my colleagues on the floor and in committees regarding a variety of issues facing our state, and I even submitted my final bills for introduction to the House of Delegates. I have 22 bills in, and most have been assigned to committees and are being heard in subcommittees very soon. To close out last week, a bill that I have with Attorney General Mark Herring to give more protections to victims of human trafficking made it out of an important committee and is one step closer to being law.
You can see how by bills fare by following the link above, and I will also share a little more details about a few problems I'm trying to fix.
HB 15 - this is my school-to-prison-pipeline bill, aiming to keep kids in the classroom and not in the courtroom.
HB 201 - this bill gets rid of the statute of limitations on restitution, ensuring victims are rightfully paid what they're owed in a timely manner.
HB 207 - this is the snow bill, proposing a fine for those who fail to clear snow from their vehicles before driving.
HB 510 - this bill places more responsibility on distracted drivers who cause harm to others as a result of using handheld devices while behind the wheel.
