During the first full week of the 2024 session, the General Assembly recognized Martin Luther King, Jr. Day for his dedication to making our country a fair and equal place for all.


On Lobby Day, constituents and advocacy groups from across the Commonwealth meet with their representatives in Richmond to discuss legislative priorities on various topics affecting residents throughout the Commonwealth.

2024 Legislation

This week, bills were referred to committees and subcommittees, where members will begin to discuss and vote on them.


All Budget Amendments from Members of the House have been submitted and will be presented to the Appropriations Committee on Monday. All amendments can be viewed at budget.lis.virginia.gov.


I also have decided to carry a new piece of legislation for the 2024 session:
HB1514 – Establishes the Virginia Sports and Entertainment Authority charged with financing the construction of a sports and entertainment campus in the City of Alexandria.

Lobby Days

The Third District is comprised of chapters in Washington, D.C., and the Commonwealth of Virginia. The birthplace of Omega, Howard University, is in the Third District. Since the Fraternity’s founding, members and chapters within the Third District have contributed significantly to the Omega spirit of friendship and preserving and promoting Omega’s fraternal values.

CASA consists of over 155,000 members across 46 states; they are a national organization improving the quality of life for working-class Black, Latino, afro-descendent, indigenous, and immigrant communities. In 2022, they opened their first Welcome Center in Prince William County to provide for the surrounding communities.

Constituent Corner

This week, my team and I met with many constituents from CASA in Action, the Prince William County Police Association, the Prince William County Fire Fighter Association, the Virginia Educators Association, and the Virginia Young Democrats, which were just a few of the great groups to stop by.
