  • Everything cost somebody something

    By Delegate Scott Garett

        I joined you in watching the 45th President of the United States take the oath of office this week. Nowhere in the world does the transition of power happen so peacefully and beautifully. Please join me and Whitney in praying for our nation and our new leaders in the days ahead.

  • 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.

    Just like a tax cut

        Although a few folks do not have an internet/telephone connected data device, the most of us do. Even those without a direct need for internet service may need to ride in an ambulance that needs that mobile connection to the hospital, while they try to save our lives. Internet is an infrastructure requirement just like electricity, just the way life is now.

  • Not fully implenting ObamaCare was a wise move for Virginia

    By Senator Steve Newman

  • 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!
