THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY

   Beginning July 1st, a number of new laws took effect as a result of bills passed by the General Assembly.  Click for more information on 2017 changes in the law.

   I only have the funds to send out one newsletter a year.  I try to make it count!  Here's my 2017 Newsletter which gives you a fuller understanding of some major issues facing Virginia:  what was done in the last Session and challenges ahead.

400 years ago, the first English settlers arrived in Jamestown. Despite many deaths, within 12 years, eight settlements had been established and two representatives were elected from each to form the first General Assembly. Its Speaker, John Pory, observed,

"...Peace is best preserved by giving...information to the people."

This website continues that tradition as we reason together to shape policies that will stand the test of time.
