Welcome to my official website!  I was elected to represent the 95th District in the Virginia House of Delegates, representing parts of Newport News and parts of Hampton.  I am honored to serve the citizens and help to make the Peninsula an even safer place to live, work, play, and raise a family.

The 2017 General Assembly Legislative Session began at 12 noon on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 and it has been non-stop since then!  We have a short session this year and we have reached Crossover.  The House of Delegates is now considering legislation that has passed the Senate and vice versa.  Are you paying attention?  Stay tuned for updates and resources on how to follow the happenings in Richmond.  

 I need your help because it will take each of us coming together to make a real difference, especially in the lives of our youth. Stay engaged on this site and our social media pages to stay connected to what we're doing and how you can help!

Peninsula legislators, students talk STEM careers

The students in the room came from different middle and high schools in Newport News and Hampton, including Heritage and Denbigh high schools and Spratley Middle School, and all have dreams of entering STEM fields. Dream jobs throughout the room ranged from neurosurgeon, to veterinarian, to ob-gyn......

A cornerstone of the conversation was the book and now movie "Hidden Figures," and the struggles the women overcame to pursue science.  "These were four African-American women in Hampton that changed the world," Del. Marcia "Cia" Price, D-Newport News, said. "And know that you have that power, too." (Click for full article)

House Votes Against Senate Redistricting Reform

RICHMOND, Va. – As Virginians demanding redistricting reform descended on the Capitol, House Democrats yesterday forced two votes of the full House Privileges and Elections Committee on Senate redistricting reform measures – both of which were killed by the committee’s Republicans in a party-line vote.  Del. Marcia “Cia” Price moved to report SJ 231 and SJ 290 to the floor of the House for a full floor vote. Both measures were killed in the Republican-controlled Elections Subcommittee on Tuesday. However, legislation can be revived in the rare event that a member of the full committee moves to report.
“It’s time for us to do the right thing,” said Price during the committee meeting. “The citizens have told us that more than seventy percent of them are for redistricting reform, and we on this committee do not represent seventy percent of constituents. It is time for it to be heard on the House floor, for all of the House members to have a vote.” (Click for full release)

Del. Price's Statement on House Budget

Del. Price is pleased to announce that the House Budget (HB1500) that passed today included $200,000 for the Newport News Public Schools’ Summer Program for Arts, Recreation, and Knowledge (SPARK) to help supplement the NNPS funding of the program.  Del. Price submitted and fought for the Budget Amendment for SPARK because she believes it is an integral part of the educational opportunities offered for students in the summer.  “Education is key to the success and safety of our youth. We must continue to support programs that work, especially those programs that prevent achievement gaps over the summer months,” said Del. Price. The Budget also includes funding for the Denbigh Aviation Academy.  Even with the tough year’s budget shortfall and impending cuts, no cuts were made to K-12 education.
