Del. Price's Statement on the Passing of Budget/Medicaid Expansion

Just now, the Virginia General Assembly finally passed a budget. After six years, we were able to pass a fiscally and morally responsible budget that includes the expansion of Medicaid. Closing this coverage gap means a more healthy and productive Commonwealth, with about 400,000 more Virginians obtaining healthcare coverage, potentially 30,000 new jobs created, and millions of federal dollars coming into Virginia that we can use for our priorities like teacher raises, state employee raises, funding for higher education, support for local police departments, resources to fight substance abuse and addiction, mental health resources, funding to help expand the Port’s capacity, and more. Knowing that 13,000 of the newly eligible Virginians that may receive Medicaid coverage live in Hampton and Newport News, 4,800 of which live in the 95th District, this is a great day for the Peninsula and the Commonwealth.

Newport News councilman wants state to enforce 'red flag' gun law

In one of his last actions as a city official, Bateman asked his colleagues to endorse a resolution urging the General Assembly to consider “extreme risk protection orders,” which have gained some national attention after a Florida High School shooting in February left 17 people dead.
Members of Newport News’ delegation had mixed thoughts — between this being a good start and perhaps going too far.

Del. Marcia “Cia” Price said she has heard concerns about enacting such a law, so she wants to create a workgroup to create a consensus.
“I’m generally supportive of measures that would help keep guns away from dangerous people and dangerous situations,” Price said. “How we go about creating the legislation, I think, would take the work of convening the stakeholders.”

Episode 7: Newport News delegate discusses politics, race

This week, we give you a quick update on how the Senate has again delayed a vote over its budget — and the prospect of Medicaid expansion. The move drew frustration from the governor, the House of Delegates and Democratic senators.
But we'll spend most of the podcast talking to Del. Marcia 'Cia' Price, D-Newport News, about her entry into politics, the challenge of being a woman of color in the General Assembly and the phone call she made to Gov. Terry McAuliffe — a strong Hillary Clinton supporter — when she decided to back Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination for president.

Study: Hampton, Newport News in nation's top 5 for worst rental eviction rates

Marra was joined in Newport News by 15 others — local lawmakers, housing authority officials and representatives from Realtor associations — to discuss the issue of evictions during a roundtable hosted by U.S. Rep. Robert C. “Bobby” Scott, D-Newport News. Missing from the table were the smaller private landlords who came up a lot as the group discussed what is causing evictions in the area.

For Scott, the most practical solution is to get more funding for local housing authorities through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to create more affordable places to live for low-income families...

State Del. Marcia ‘Cia’ Price, D-Newport News, said that she would welcome this discussion on the state level to see what can be addressed.
