Welcome to my website!  I proudly represent the 95th District in the Virginia House of Delegates (parts of Newport News and parts of Hampton).  I am honored to serve the residents and help make the Peninsula an even better place to live, learn, work, play, and raise a family.  Join the team today and together, we can continue to get the changes we need and deserve!

The 2022 General Assembly Legislative Session began on Wednesday, January 12, 2022 at noon and adjourned Sine Die on Saturday, March 12, 2022.  During Session, members of the Virginia House of Delegates met during the week and you can watch our committee meetings and Floor sessions here.  Can't remember how a bill becomes a law, no problem! Get your refresher here to follow along the process.

Here are links from our work in 2022 and 2021:  

During the Reconvened Session, we voted on the Governor's amendments and vetoes, including vetoes of bills that could have actually helped a lot of people.  We were also called back for a Special Session because we did not finish our work like we usually do.  During Special Session, we voted on conference reports (compromise bills), including the budget and the Governor's detrimental amendments to the compromise budget. We are scheduled to go back on September 7th.

In the meantime, be sure to sign up for our email newsletter to receive important updates. And be sure to check back often for news posts and updates from the District.  We have included important information on COVID-19, including rent and mortgage relief, COVID-19 testing and vaccination info, and more.  Take a look around the site and be sure to like, follow, share, and comment on my social media pages.

A Newport News lawmaker got diagnosed with a hormonal disorder as a teen. Now she’s raising awareness about it.

“It was a hard thing to hear as a 16-year old,” Price said. Those who struggle with the disorder, or want to learn about it, can join the Newport News Democrat Tuesday at 7 p.m. for a virtual discussion. Price and three other speakers will be talking about their experiences and sharing ways to advocate for those with PCOS.

Throughout her life, Price said the disorder has taken a toll on her mental and physical health. But she rarely spoke about it — until a teenage constituent with PCOS came to her office a few years ago. “She came to me as her delegate and wanted me to do something to help raise awareness,” she said.

Hampton Roads lawmakers weigh in on abortion at special session

This week, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle from Hampton Roads weighed in on the controversial conversation surrounding abortion access and its future in Virginia. Wednesday, state legislators reconvened in Richmond for a special session of the Virginia General Assembly. After the bipartisan pleasantries, delegates from the region soon took the microphone, some to speak out against Gov. Glenn Youngkin, more specifically his pro-life stance.

"Decisions like this belong to a woman and her doctor, not the governor," Minority Leader and Portsmouth Del. Don Scott said. Scott argued that the governor's views on the issue are out of touch with the rest of Virginia.  "The reality is that more than half of the state after the Dobbs decision was afraid that the governor and Republicans would try to come in today and ban abortions -- try to limit a woman’s reproductive freedoms," Del. Scott said. 

"Protecting life is not what we saw this past legislative session. We saw an extremist agenda more interested in retweets and revenge than protecting constituents' lives. We’ve heard promises to send down a bill to ban abortion and restrict Virginians' freedoms by taking power away from individuals to make decisions about their own health," Newport News Del. Marcia Price said shortly after.

Youngkin’s pick for Historic Resources Board under fire for defending the Confederacy

Gov. Glenn Youngkin is facing calls to withdraw his recent appointee to the Historic Resources Board due to her recent comments defending the Confederacy and criticizing former President Abraham Lincoln’s role in the Civil War.  Youngkin announced last week he had appointed Ann McLean, a historian and the founder of a Christian school in Richmond, to serve on the Board of Historic Resources. Shortly after, she came under fire for previous remarks defending Confederate statues on a Richmond radio show. On Monday, she returned to the radio show and seemingly doubled down. 

“I think the appropriate reaction here is disgust,” Del. Cia Price, a Newport News Democrat and member of the Virginia Legislative Black Caucus, said Tuesday.
