Over a quarter of a century ago, Virginia made significant investments in its transportation infrastructure. Ever since, we have struggled to fully fund our transportation needs. Now, our roads are crumbling and congested. Thousands of bridges need repair. Too many Virginians spend too much time sitting in traffic rather than with their families or working. Our urban areas need a more robust mass transit system, and we need high-speed rail to connect Hampton Roads to Washington.

The election of Barack Obama as President in 2008 was a historic first for our country.  His re-election is just as remarkable given that no Democratic President since Franklin D. Roosevelt has won more than 50% of the vote in consecutive elections.  No President since 1940 has been re-elected in a time when the unemployment rate was over 7.5%.    Perhaps his success is rooted in his record.

We are nearing the finish line for the 2016 General Assembly Session, with a little over a week to go.  Last week, the House and the Senate acted on their respective budgets. The House budget proposal, outlined below, has a number of positive items, including pay increases for state employees and increased spending on public schools. However, both the House and Senate budgets remove funding for Medicaid expansion, leaving hundreds of thousands of Virginians without access to quality health care services.

Today marks the mid-way point of the session, known as "Crossover". This is the date by which each chamber must complete work on its own bills. Before the end of the day, we will vote on hundreds of bills on the House floor, covering charter schools, juvenile justice reform, economic development, certificate of public need reform for hospitals, ethics, guns, and early childhood education.  We will address the biennial budget next week.

Session is well underway, but was disrupted by Winter Storm Jonas.  For only the second time in 48 years, the General Assembly closed last Friday as the Governor declared a state of emergency and the Commonwealth prepared for the storm.
