Law, undergrad students use GIS tools to redraw 11 Virginia House districts

She said she gained a deeper appreciation of the complexity and consequences of the legislative districting process when Del. Marcia Price of the 95th District visited the class and spoke to the students about her district's demographics.
"The difficulty of our task became even more evident when we took into account the various socioeconomic factors that came into play when creating districts," Hudenburg said. "[Price] made it apparent that changing a single block could have an impact on her district, and she wanted us to realize that these lines really can make a difference in the elections." Other guest speakers included former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Marc Elias, partner at Perkins Coie and the attorney who argued Bethune-Hill before the Supreme Court and Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute.

Ex-Felons Voting for the First Time Could Shake Virginia’s Governor’s Race

Virginia is one of four states that permanently disenfranchise people with felonies, even after they’ve served their sentences. While the state’s governor is allowed to restore individuals’ right to vote, last year Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe shocked conservatives by signing an order restoring rights to more than 200,000 people who had completed their sentences and parole. Republican lawmakers successfully sued to block the move, arguing that he lacked authority to restore rights en masse. So McAuliffe’s administration started handing out the orders one by one; more than 168,000 ex-offenders have since had their voting rights returned. About 42,000 of them have registered to vote.

That’s a large chunk of people we’ve added back to the electorate,” says Marcia Price, a member of Virginia’s House of Delegates and a campaign co-chair for Lt. Governor Ralph Northam, the Democratic gubernatorial candidate.
Of the former felons who have recently had their rights restored, nearly half are black. Before McAuliffe’s historic announcement last year, about 1 in 5 African Americans in the state could not vote because of their criminal records. (Click for full story)

Today is Ask A Stupid Question Day! Ask yours!

Today is #AskAStupidQuestionDay! Back in the 80's, educators were realizing that students weren't asking questions because they were afraid of being judged or sounding "stupid". The teachers created a day just for them to ask the questions they were most afraid of asking. By making a safe space for their questions, it encouraged their curiosity and lessened their fear of judgement.
To celebrate the day, I'm doing a slightly different take and opening up to answer all of your questions about politics, government, policy, civics, community, and more! Ask your question below. The only "stupid" question is the one that goes unasked!
I'll be answering the questions on Facebook and Twitter today, September 29th 1pm-6pm!

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.”

Forty-six days after it gavelled in, the Virginia General Assembly gavelled out Saturday.

Speaker of the House William Howell announced his retirement and will be succeeded, assuming Republicans hold their House majority in the November elections, by current Majority Leader Kirk Cox, R-Colonial Heights.

Bill for capping school suspension lengths dies

Votes on the four measures focused on the issue were bipartisan, with the state Senate backing reform by a wide margin while the House was nearly evenly divided.
Teacher, administrator and school board lobbying groups opposed the bills. As the session went on enough support eroded in the House that tight victories became narrow losses. On Thursday afternoon, Stanley and Del. Dickie Bell, R-Staunton, threw in the towel.
At one point their bills would have capped suspensions at 45 days, though that was moved to 90 days with a review after 45 days. Other legislation from the pair would have ended suspensions for children in pre-K through fifth grade, though exceptions were built in for drug offenses, firearm offenses and other serious crimes.
That eventually became a five-day cap for students from pre-K to 3rd grade, then a 10-day cap.

The House voted down this final proposal Monday on a 46-50 vote... (Delegate) Marcia "Cia" Price, D-Newport News, voted for the bill. (Click for full article)

In abortion bill veto, an issue for 2017 campaigns

McAuliffe held Tuesday's veto ceremony outside of the governor's mansion, and he said the symbolism should be clear.
"The governor's mansion is the brick wall," he said.  House Bill 2264 dealt with relatively little state money: Less than $30,000 destined for Planned Parenthood's five centers around the state. But the defunding also could have affected federal eligibility, which would have been "unspeakably devastating," Virginia League for Planned Parenthood President and CEO Paulette McElwain said.

Eighteen Democratic legislators joined the governor for the ceremony, including Del. Marcia "Cia" Price, D-Newport News.

"It's important that the governor be someone who's willing to stand up and protect women's access to health care," she said. (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)

Officials Highlight Past Achievements, Future Discoveries at NASA AeroSpace Days

Virginia Del. Marcia Price knows NASA is about more than space, but she is admittedly fascinated with rocket launches.
Price recalled how she and her boyfriend tried to witness a recent rocket launch at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Wallops Island, Virginia, but failed to make it on time. They ended up viewing the launch from a nearby bridge and were amazed by the sight.  “That inspiration happens when you guys didn’t even realize it,” she said.  Price was among the many Virginia legislators who were visited by officials from Wallops and NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Virginia, during NASA AeroSpace Days — now in its 12th year — Feb. 1 and 2 in Richmond, Virginia. The annual event allows leaders from NASA and the aerospace industry to speak with Virginia policymakers about the benefits that the aerospace sector brings to the state, as well as opportunities for growth and improvement.

Virginia police department looking for clarification about ‘loophole’ in juvenile gun rights

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. -- The Newport News police department is looking for clarification about the rights juveniles have when it comes to possessing a gun.
Currently under Virginia law, anyone under 18 cannot have a gun, except in two cases: hunting and when a juvenile is in their home, their parents', grandparents' or guardian's.
Police said this causes an issue for them. “If we go on scene and the juvenile has a weapon and the parent isn’t aware of it, we have no legal ground to take the weapon at that point because of the way the code is written," Capt. Jason Bollhorst told affiliate WTKR.
That's why police are working with Delegate Marcia Price to add verbiage to the bill that would say a juvenile needs to have parent consent to have that gun. Capt. Bollhorst added if the police department is investigating a case and have probable cause when it comes to the gun in question, they can take it. (Click for Video and full article)

Democrats call for vote on redistricting reforms

With a single vote, the Republican-led House panel moved to throw out more than 20 bills. Some measures would have revised Virginia law dealing with re-instating ex-felons' ability to vote. Other efforts looked at changing the way voting districts are drawn in the commonwealth. (Click for Video and Article)

With single vote, House subcommittee kills more than 20 proposed Va. constitutional amendments

“When you have someone say that you can only take four forward and then you basically base it on the chronology of the vote as opposed to voting on each one and its merit, then that’s an interesting message to be sent to voters,” said Del. Marcia S. “Cia” Price, D-Newport News.
Ahead of what would have been a voice vote, Price moved that the vote on the group of bills be recorded. She voted against laying the resolutions on the table with Del. Jason S. Miyares, R-Virginia Beach, and Del. Joseph C. Lindsey, D-Norfolk.
Price carried a resolution that would have banned redistricting for political purposes. The amendment also would have made legislators’ communications regarding redistricting available to the public. It received a 5-to-2 vote because Price made a motion to report it to the committee before the group of bills was formed. Miyares joined the other Republicans in voting against it.

Newport News Police seeks clarity: Juvenile gun rights vs. parent permission

The Newport News Police Department's take on a small section of state law brought a tricky question before the legislature Thursday: Can a 16-year-old have a gun in the house without his parents' permission?  The city was seeking clarity on the issue via House Bill 2098, sponsored by Del. Marcia "Cia" Price, D-Newport News. The bill would have tweaked state code to make certain that minors must have permission to bring a gun into the home of their parent, grandparent or guardian.

'30 pieces of silver' day care fingerprint bill draws church criticism

Griffey said parents likely assume all day cares are treated equally by the state. A measure that would have required day cares to inform parents of their level of oversight has failed to clear the legislature.
Pogge, R-Norge, is a member of the House Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee, which will vote on the house fingerprint bill Thursday. Del. Marcia "Cia" Price, D-Hampton, and Del. Gordon Helsel, R-Poquoson, also are on the committee, and both said they plan to vote for the bill.
"To forego funding ... for a philosophical conversation, I think, is irresponsible," Price said. "Especially on this issue. We need to make sure everyone gets a background check."

Lawmakers from Hampton Roads say they're planning to address law enforcement salaries across the Commonwealth.

Virginia Democratic delegates to seek new student loan authority

The state House Democratic Caucus is backing a plan to get the state back into the business of making student loans.  Dels. Marcus B. Simon of Fairfax and Marcia S. Price of Newport News said Monday that they will propose legislation to revive the Virginia Education Loan Authority, which was shut down in the mid-1990s after providing student loans for two decades.

Virginia Democrats Seek to Help Ease Student Loan Debt

RICHMOND, Va. (WVIR) - Virginia Democrats are rolling out a plan to tackle the heavy burden of student loan debt. Lawmakers are introducing bills aimed at lowering interest rates, and having the commonwealth play a role in issuing new loans.
Democrats argue Virginia's economy is being held back because graduates are unable to invest much in the economy. Legislators believe they are delaying buying homes, as well as starting their own families or business because of their debt.
"We cannot move forward with a new Virginia economy when our next generation of leaders come out of school crippled with debt," said 95th District Delegate Marcia Price (D).

Del. Price Will Seek Re-Election

Delegate Price said, “The advances that we have made to make quality educational opportunities available to all of our youth are significant.  Progress made toward the New Virginia Economy has been tremendous as we invest in job creation and innovation.  Community policing efforts in decreasing youth crime over the summer were successful.  Honoring the value of our veterans entering the civilian workforce was a priority.  Protecting victims of domestic violence was a bipartisan effort.  Restoring the rights of thousands of Virginians to participate in the governmental process is huge.  There have been gains. But often they are tempered by the amount of work we still have yet to accomplish. For instance, we have to continue to make our neighborhoods safer. We can’t settle. We have to keep going.”

Price wants to continue the progress that has been made in her district and the Commonwealth in a second term.  “What we do and say must send authentic messages that we want everyone to have an opportunity for wholeness and wellness and that we want everyone to have the opportunity to have their voice be heard,” she said.

Community Leaders Attend Summit on Gun Violence

NEWPORT NEWS, VA – On Monday evening, more than 30 community leaders met to discuss the alarming recent uptick in gun violence in the city.  As of that evening, Newport News had had 23 murders and more than 100 incidents involving guns.  The group was called together by Delegate Marcia “Cia” Price (95th District) in an effort to receive updates from law enforcement and City Officials to clarify some misconceptions about the situation.  The goals were also to collaborate as a group on short and long term solutions, and assess current resources and strategies and some of the voids needing to be addressed...... 

Delegate Price summarized the meeting by saying, “We as leaders needed to commit to solutions that will focus on prevention, intervention, enforcement, and reentry.  Our city is more than our violence.  We care about each of our citizens and want them to feel safe and have a great quality of life.  We want each of our children to be able to live out their dreams.  We want our city to thrive, together.  In order for that to happen, we must reclaim our communities from the reality of gun violence.”

Scott, Warner urge locals to head to the polls

A Clinton presidency would also mean solutions for mounting student debt, Scott said. It's an issue he brought up a second time after saying that State Del. Marcia Price asked him to reach out to the millennial voters.
The millennial voice is important in this election, said State Del. Marcia Price, before the event started. Despite mixed stuff she's heard from polls and surveys, Price said she's seeing excitement from both younger and black voters.
"I think people know how important this election is, and we can't sit out," she said.

Raise Your Voice - Letter to the Editor by Del. Price

Raise your voice
The presidential candidates have made the case for their visions of our country's future. We know their platforms, perspectives and personalities. On Tuesday, we will choose our next president.
Elections have consequences that reverberate for generations, and this may be the most consequential election in our lifetime. On day one of our next president's administration, she or he will fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court. That decision alone will determine if the right to vote will be protected for millions of Americans, if a woman has the right to make her own health care decisions, and if every American can enjoy the same equality and freedom no matter who they are and who they love.
This is not a question of just temperament and experience, although those are hugely important. What is essentially on the ballot in this election are two different visions for America. Donald Trump and Mike Pence's divisive vision that would tear our country apart and Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine's inclusive vision that says we are stronger together.
At any given time, there are at least 15 elected officials that represent you, making decisions about your life. Your vote is how you have a voice in who is chosen. In this election, we are choosing the leader of our nation and the Congress that will help get things done. They will be chosen whether you show up or not!
Don't wake up on Wednesday and regret that you chose not to participate in this historic moment.
Let's make history, together.
Del. Marcia S. "Cia" Price

Del Price Responds to Hearing on Election Readiness

RICHMOND, VA - Today, both the Senate and House Privileges and Elections committees met jointly in a last minute meeting, called less than 30 days before the election.  With such a short timeline before elections and a subsequent lack of feasible short term solutions offered (ones that don’t involve shutting down tools that help the voter), it is unclear as to what we accomplished as far as solutions. The meeting occurred on the same day that the Republican Presidential Nominee paired down his campaign efforts in Virginia. I am hoping that this meeting was not an attempt to cast undue doubt on the integrity of Virginia’s elections system because of declining polling numbers for a particular candidate.

RTD Coverage of Williamsburg

Del. Marcia S. Price, D-Newport News, spoke at a news conference in Williamsburg ahead of Pence’s speech. She criticized Trump for spending years stoking false rumors that President Barack Obama was born outside the United States.
On Friday, Trump finally acknowledged that Obama was born in the U.S.
“Trump has refused to apologize or take any accountability for his years of divisive rhetoric, peddling a bigoted attack against our country’s first black president,” Price said, according to the Clinton campaign. “Instead, he stood up and told more lies about the origin of the conspiracy theory.”

Last week, Donald Trump showed us again that he is unfit to serve as President of the United States. As Sen. Locke alluded to, the Republican Presidential Nominee has been playing dangerous games, but we are not fooled.
Trump and his new fancy advisers seem to think that by stating fact - that President Obama is an American - the issue is now done, but that is NOT TRUE.  This is not just about political strategy but about the larger issue of character and track records of the candidates.  For starters, Trump has refused to apologize or take accountability for his years of divisive rhetoric, peddling a bigoted attack against our country’s first black president. Instead, he stood up and told more lies about the origins of this hateful conspiracy theory and his role in perpetuating it. (Click for more)

NN Sen. Miller dies at 68

We have lost a gentle giant who spent his years in public service fighting for our children to have the best education possible. He freely offered his wisdom and guidance to me in Richmond and always found something positive to say. He had a great sense of humor and I definitely will miss him.  It was a beautiful and emotional service for Sen. Miller today at First Baptist Church Denbigh. A lot of elected officials and staff were present and both Gov. McAuliffe and Lt. Gov. Northam gave touching reflections. Please keep in prayer Mrs. Miller, the entire family, his staff, and those 139 of us in the General Assembly that will surely miss him. We will carry on the torch in his honor. - Del. Price

"[Price] made it apparent that changing a single block could have an impact on her district, and she wanted us to realize that these lines really can make a difference in the elections." Other guest speakers included former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, Marc Elias, partner at Perkins Coie and the attorney who argued Bethune-Hill before the Supreme Court and Walter Olson, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute.
