Welcome to my website!  I was elected to represent the 95th District in the Virginia House of Delegates (parts of Newport News and parts of Hampton).  I am honored to serve the citizens and help make the Peninsula an even better place to live, learn, work, play, and raise a family.

The 2019 General Assembly Legislative Session began at noon on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.  Odd numbered years are "short sessions" and we met for 46 calendar days (one more day than usual).  During Session, all 100 members of the Virginia House of Delegates met every Monday-Friday at noon. You can watch each session here.

Our committee meetings were held at various times during the week. Find our committee video here. Can't remember how a bill becomes a law, no problem! Get your refresher here.

We adjourned sine die on February 24, 2019. And then our next step in the legislative process was Reconvened (Veto) Session on April 3, 2019. There the Senators and Delegates reacted to the Governor's vetoes and amendments to bills that had been passed.

Next up in the process was the laws becoming effective on July 1st.

More recently, the General Assembly was called back for Special Session and began on July 9, 2019.  The intent was for the legislature to discuss gun violence prevention measures but the parameters of the session are being guided by the resolution that was approved.  We were in Session for 90 minutes, click here to watch the House video from Special Session!  Unfortunately, instead of in depth conversation about the proposed legislation, the current leadership punted the bills to the Crime Commission.  They will meet on August 19th and 20th with public comment and bill presentations happening on the 20th.  For a list of all of the proposed bills  please click here and to see the four Gun Violence related bills I have proposed, click here.  

Stay tuned as this continues to develop.  

In the meantime, sign up for our email newsletter to receive important updates. And be sure to check back often for news posts and updates from the District.  Stay informed on this site and our social media pages to stay connected to see what we're doing and how you can help!  

Now, let's go make a difference!

Sincerely,

Delegate Marcia "Cia" Price, 

Virginia House of Delegates, District 95

Del. Price's Update on Special Session

The Virginia General Assembly met for a Special Session on Gun Violence on July 9, 2019. There, the leadership decided to shut down debate, table the bills, and send them to the Crime Commission. The Crime Commission met yesterday and will continue today. 
This has been a sad and scary summer for Newport News and other parts of Hampton Roads. Unfortunately, we in the 95th District are no strangers to the effects of gun violence. Whether because of domestic violence, youth violence, or gang violence, we know something must be done. Today, I will join my colleagues in presenting bills before the Crime Commission and making the case that we have an issue and we need to do something about it to save lives. We in #757 deserve safe places to live, work, and play without fear of gun violence. I'm going to do my part and I need you to do yours.

Here’s one viewpoint on Virginia’s gun debate — from behind bars

Democrat Marcia “Cia” Price, who succeeded BaCote’s mother as the 95th District delegate, has a bill she thinks could help some of those youth programs be successful.
Modeled after her uncle U.S. Rep. Bobby Scott’s Youth PROMISE (Prison Reduction through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education) Act, the bill would fund “community assessments” in Hampton, Newport News, Norfolk, Richmond, and Roanoke to see what’s working to prevent youth and gang violence, and what’s not working.
Each of those localities — chosen, Price said Tuesday, because they experience a disproportionate amount of gun violence — would get $25,000 for these assessments, paid for through surplus general fund revenues.
She also wants the state’s auditing commission to study the social, physical, emotional, and economic effects of gun violence in Virginia.
“I would like to study the people,” she said. “Why they are shooting, the radiating effects, the number of lives impacted, number of dollars spent. I think we will be able to see that it is an issue.”
She’ll be at the meeting Tuesday pitching her bills in the hopes commissioners will recommend them to more state lawmakers, but they won’t all be back in Richmond to consider them until Nov. 18. The Crime Commission is scheduled to finalize a report on its recommendations after Nov. 12.
