General Assembly Week 1 Recap

Dear Friends:

 

We just finished the 10-day mark in the General Assembly.  I am proud to report that my bills to improve the juvenile justice system and place a safety net under our most vulnerable TANF families have been reported out of Committees.  

 

My bill extending the time from 5 days to 10 days that a teacher has to appeal an evaluation is scheduled for a floor vote this week.  In the enclosed video, I explain my Mental Health and Domestic Violence bills, two hallmarks in my legislative agenda. Here is the link to the video, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqsp4oObAvQ

 

Please keep your fingers and toes crossed for a Democratic win in the 33rd Senate District.  The election is Tuesday, January 21st.

 

I will discuss ethics reform and the continual war on women in future email alerts.  In the meanwhile, you may contact my office at (703)-835-4845 or email at District31@senate.virginia.gov

 

Sincerely,

 

 Barbara Favola
