NEW PLAN: McClellan Proposes Economic Rebuilding Plan to Invest in Workers, Small Businesses, Address Inequity

Today, three of Senator Jennifer McClellan’s bills ‒ SB 1327, SB 1276, and SB 1439 ‒ were signed into law by Governor Ralph Northam. These bills will make Virginia the first state in the South to end the ban on abortion coverage on the health care exchange, help protect homeowners from foreclosure, and increase youth civic engagement. These three bills were in a package of ten McClellan bills that passed through the General Assembly. Sen. McClellan’s full legislative package will address the problems Virginia families face right now, in order to help rebuild a stronger, post-COVID-19 Commonwealth.
