  • Budget is General Assembly’s responsibility

    By Senator Steve Newman

        This has been a very busy week in Richmond.   We’ve been setting some unusual and surprising records this session.  The number of visitors to the General Assembly Building, where all our offices are located and where most of the committee hearings are held, has reached numbers not seen in nearly 30 years.

  • General Assembly saw record number of visitors

    By Delegate Kathy Byron

        The second full week of the 2017 General Assembly session was busy, with bills and resolutions being considered by committees at a quick pace.  And, we broke some records for the number of visitors to Capitol Square, too.

  • History will vindicate Barack Obama

         Now that he’s out of office, attention turns away from our 44th president to this new creature installed by angry white people, Russian election tampering, and the ridiculous, much in need of abolishment, Electoral College.
        It won’t take long for Americans to notice the difference in the transition from a good and decent man, highly intelligent and articulate, to this billionaire rabble-rouser with botched language skills and a teen-aged Twitter obsession.

  • Hey left-wingers, it could be worse

        Folks on the left are really upset about President Trump. His flurry of executive orders have already gone a long way to erasing Barack Obama’s legacy.

  • Real America at the Women’s March

        Inaugural week in Washington demonstrated that the benefits of a free society, which include the right to protest, can produce an outpouring of solidarity, determination, and a grand statement to a new and highly unpopular president: You’re illegitimate, and we know it!

  • Focus on East Asia

        I watched the Inauguration last week. President Donald Trump’s speech was inspiring.

  • McCarren-Ferguson Healthcare Antitrust Exemption must go

  • How we repeal and replace Obamacare

    Unaffordable premiums, deductibles through the roof, losing a doctor you’ve had for years, being dropped from the coverage you need – these are just some of the ways Obamacare isn’t working for Virginians. No amount of patches or delays can resuscitate Obamacare from its failures. The calls, letters, and emails I’ve received about what families, seniors, and businesses have experienced only emphasize this fact. That is exactly why Congress is getting to work on the process to repeal and replace this law.

  • 2017 Session opens

    By Delegate Terry Austin

        The 2017 Session of the Virginia General Assembly was called to order on Wednesday, January 12.  The session will run for 46 days, ending on February 25.
        It promises to be a busy and fast moving session, full of issues important to the citizens of the 19th District.  It is for that reason that I enter the session with unbridled enthusiasm and energy, fully dedicated to resolving important issues in a way that serves the best interests of our citizens.
