Three of my bills reported out of committee last week and will be voted on the Senate floor this week.
SB 1475 adds to the family life education curriculum guidelines regarding sexual assault age-appropriate instruction that increases student awareness of the fact that consent is required before sexual activity. It also adds instruction on the importance of family relationships. The bill reported from the Education and Health Committee 14-1.
SB 1494 establishes a legal framework to allow companies such as UZERV to pre-arrange rides with transportation network companies (like Uber and Lyft) or to request specific drivers whom they designate as their favorites. Without this legislation, companies such as UZERV cannot operate in Virginia.
SB 1493 establishes capacity for Virginia to train K-12 teachers to teach computer science through a public-private partnership between Northern Virginia Community College and a non-profit.
