At 1:30pm today Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe’s Taskforce on Combating Campus Sexual Violence held its final meeting at the Patrick Henry Building in Richmond where the 21 Recommendations of the Taskforce were presented by Attorney General Mark Herring (they were were posted online ahead of time). Plus a Ceremonial Bill Signing was held for HB1785 and SB712 / HB1930 that passed the 2015
back in February to become law on July 1st . Virginia
I attended the meeting (sitting right behind Gil and Dan Harrington) to hear what all the speakers had to say and to see if the false 1 in 5 claim was made as it had been at the very first Taskforce meeting, it wasn’t! During a break I also asked a few Legislators (there were 12 or more in attendance) about the VSP issue I brought to their attention last week.
As for the 21 recommendations some that will require legislation at the 2016 General Assembly session, they are all reasonable and I do not oppose any of them.
