These past weeks the Virginia House of Delegates passed legislation to address COVID-19 and to enact comprehensive police and criminal justice reform. The bills now “crossover” to the Senate for their approval where, in many cases, there is a similar bill that was also passed by that body.

The Governor is announced yesterday that he is extending business closures for an extra week until May 15th. He will evaluate future delays in re-opening based on daily incoming data. The current plan is to re-open the Commonwealth in three distinct phases. I also wanted to share additional updates for COVID-19 testing, PPE and our inaugural "Resilience Week" in our Commonwealth.

In these challenging times, it is critical that we continue to stand together. Our unity is our strength. Keep in contact with your loved ones if you can, there are many resources that are free, like Zoom. It is crucial that we check in on our friends, family and neighbors to ensure they are doing ok. One act of kindness goes a long way, we need more positivity in the world.

On Tuesday, July 9th, we will return to Richmond for a special legislative session. Following the deadly shooting in Virginia Beach, we met with the Governor in Richmond where he held a press conference and announced that we will go into special session to address critical gun safety issues. These issues were rejected, blocked and not allowed to be heard or voted on in this past legislative session. It is my hope that the recent tragedy will have had a meaningful impact on opponents of sensible gun safety efforts and allow us to move forward with meaningful laws and regulations that will save lives.
