Richmond, VA– Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn released the following statement on the Virginia House of Delegates accomplishments upon today’s “crossover” of the General Assembly session.
“Voters demanded action in November. They called for decisive action to make their communities safer, more equal and more prosperous. Today, at the crossover of the 2020 General Assembly session, I am proud to say the House of Delegates has delivered on the voters’ mandate.
We have kept our promise to truly be the ‘People’s House’ by passing long overdue legislation to protect Virginians from exploitation, discrimination and senseless violence. We have stood up for working families, strengthened our democracy, moved to preserve Virginia’s natural assets, and, at last, enshrined women in the United States Constitution.
We look forward to finishing this session just as strong as we have started it as we work with our colleagues in the Senate to continue this historic progress in Virginia.”
