On Wednesday January 14th the 2015 Virginia General Assembly session begins in
The bills have been rolling in (posted on LIS) and they will continue to until January 26th (deadline is the 23rd but that is for the Legislator to get it to Legislative Services, not for Legislative Services to post it in LIS for us to read).
I have already posted Action Items against numerous bills that we know about:
HB1353 and SB934 –AKA Robby’s Rule:
HB1366 – A Parents Private Petition Hearing to Participate in Their Child’s Education Being Publicized and Open to the Public:
HB1503 – Residency Restrictions and Contact with Victim Becomes a Felony with No consideration of Family Members, Rehabilitation, Restorative Justice, Housing Needs or Homeownership:
HB1526 – Criminalizing 13, 14, 15 16 and 17 year olds “Chat”
If you have not taken action on the four above bills yet, please do today because there will be more bills with action items to come.
When you send an email to your Delegate and Senator, stick to one issue/bill don't bulk multiple bills into one email even if they are all by the same patron. Keep it simple, factual and short. Adding a personal story or experience (not too long or too much detail) is always good. Also be sure to list the bill number in your Subject line and advise them you are a constituent from their district in the body of your email.
