Drive Smart Hands Free Legislation
I am proud to be supporting the effort to toughen Virginia’s distracted driving law by introducing HB 874, a bill that prohibits drivers from holding phones while operating a motor vehicle. The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus supports making our roadways safer for all Virginians but not at the risk of disparate application of law. We were happy to work with Drive Smart Virginia to improve the legislation and ensure that the new law will be applied fairly and equitably. HB 874 passed on the House floor and will proceed to the Senate next week.
Community Feature: Virginia Young Democrats 
It was a pleasure to meet with the next generation of Virginia Democrats earlier this week. We had a great conversation about their legislative priorities and the future of Virginia. Our Commonwealth is in good hands with leaders like these!
HB 7 for Virginia Fair Housing
I am so happy that HB 7, the Virginia Fair Housing Law, passed this week on the house floor. HB 7 prohibits discrimination by local governments in land use decisions or in the permitting of housing developments. Thank you to all the housing activists who worked tirelessly to see this bill through.
