Editorial: Ranking jobs in a grab bag

The House committee also let die a proposal from Del. Jeion Ward, D-Hampton, to protect workers from being forced to accept wages by a credit to a prepaid debit card, a practice that means they can be forced to pay a fee to get access to their money. The House Appropriations committee rejected an effort by Del. Marcia Price, D-Newport News, to help young Virginians refinance high-rate student loan debt. And the Senate Courts committee said no the proposal by state Sen. Monty Mason, D-Williamsburg, to expand protection against financial exploitation of incapacitated adults.
There is a common theme here: Virginia state government spends too much time telling local government what to do but is much less diligent following up on responsibilities it has assumed for itself. (Click for full editorial)

Who Gets To Legislate Heritage In Virginia

Del. Marcia Price (D-Newport News), a fourth-generation Episcopalian with African American and Pamunkey ancestry and an M.A. in Christian theology from Howard University, voted no on Virginia’s Christian Heritage resolution. She found H.R. 297’s jump from Pocahontas to Oliver Hill jarring and “irresponsible.”
As Del. Price explained by phone, “Celebrating our history means embracing and being completely honest about the full historical record, including the not-so glamorous parts. African slavery, the exclusion of the enslaved from Christianity, the mistreatment of Native peoples, and Jim Crow—these are critical aspects of Virginia’s history and too important to pass over.”

A majority of Va. legislators call for recording committee meetings

A healthy majority – 85 -- of our 140 state Senators and members of the House of Delegates say the General Assembly should insist that its new office building (and the temporary facility it will move to before the 2018 session) should have facilities for full full audio and visual recording of committee and subcommittee meetings.

Among those signing were Del. Gordon Helsel, R-Poquoson; Del. Keith Hodges, R-Urbanna; state Sen. Mamie Locke, D-Hampton; state Sen. Monty Mason, D-Williamsburg; Del. Mike Mullin, D-Newport News; state Sen. Tommy Norment, R-James City County; Del. Brenda Pogge, R-Norge; Del. Marcia Price, D-Newport News and Del. Jeion Ward, D-Hampton. (Click for full article)
