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 and the General Assembly will not meet again until after the November 5th elections. 

The Crime Commission met on August 19th to hear testimony from industry organizations and agencies.  And on August 20th they heard public comment and bill presentations from Delegates and Senators.  For a list of all of the proposed bills  please click here and to see the four Gun Violence related bills I have proposed for Special Session 2019, click here.  

See video from the meetings: Day 1 and Day 2 (my bill presentation is at 4:23:00)

Stay tuned as this continues to develop.

Episcopal Seminary in Virginia Starts Slavery Reparations Fund

Delegate Cia Price of Hampton Roads says lawmakers in Richmond should also be thinking about reparations, even if money isn’t involved. “Whether it’s in the code, whether it’s in funding models for education, whether it’s obstacles to the ballot box, there are reparations we can do through policy changes that we need to do immediately.”

New Commission announced to examine racial inequality in Virginia law

The Commission will review the Virginia Acts of Assembly, Code of Virginia, and administrative regulations to identify and make recommendations to address laws that were intended to or could have the effect of promoting or enabling racial discrimination or inequity.

The new commission was inspired by Senator Lionel Spruill and Delegate Marcia Price on Senate Bill 1079 and House Bill 2473. It encouraged the commission's mission to identify similar remainders of racially discriminatory language on Virginia’s books.

This Commission is part of the Northam administration’s ongoing work to right historical inequities in areas like education, healthcare, and access to business opportunities.
