The Virginia General Assembly convened for its 2023 short session on Wednesday, January 11. During the 45-day session, the House of Delegates and Senate of Virginia will consider proposed bills and amend the Commonwealth’s biennial operating budget. Be sure to follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep up with all the latest news from Richmond during session!
My 2023 Legislative Agenda
In this session, I will focus on ensuring that Democratic priorities are included in the Commonwealth’s revised operating budget. We must secure funding that improves our schools, behavioral health system, public safety, and health care.
I am sponsoring legislation that will make Virginian’s lives easier and enhance communication between state and local governments.
HB1828 – Authorizes the Department of Conservation and Recreation to grant and convey an easement and right-of-way over Neabsco Beach Way at Leesylvania State Park to the River Mouth Corporation.
HB1829 – Requires state agencies and localities to inquire into a bidder’s certification as a small, women- or minority-owned business (SWAM) before entering into a contract with them.
HB1830 – Increases from five days to 14 days the mandatory waiting period after a landlord serves written notice on a tenant notifying the tenant of his nonpayment of rent and of the landlord’s intention to terminate the rental agreement if rent is not paid before the landlord may pursue remedies for termination of the rental agreement.
HB1831 – Allows long-term care Medicaid Uniform Assessment Instruments completed by the Area Agency on Aging staff and hospitals to be shared with a local Department of Social Services (DSS) and used for submission for long-term care Medicaid eligibility.
Lastly, in every session, we are able to offer commending resolutions to honor residents for their outstanding contributions to our community. If you would like to nominate someone, please send nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your submission should include the nominee’s full name and a description of their contributions.
