I wish you and your loved ones had a very happy Labor Day. On each and every Labor Day, we should take a moment to thank workforce and labor advocates who have secured workers protections such as safe working conditions and child labor laws and who are continuing their fight to secure further protections for our workforce.
Our workforce is the backbone of our community and we must assist them in their advocacy efforts to ensure that they can live a dignified, safe and full life in their place of employment. I am a proud advocate and supporter of our workers and I proudly fight for fair wages, workplace protections, and equal opportunity for all. For as long as I serve in the Virginia General Assembly, the workforce will be one of the main focuses of my office.
As always, I am here to help you and hear your concerns, comments or questions. Do not hesitate to contact me at 703-996-9415 or DelkDelaney@house.virginia.gov
DMV 2 Go at the Sully Government Center- THIS SATURDAY:
Me and Sully Supervisor Kathy Smith on September 7th from 10 AM - 2 PM at the Sully Government Center for a DMV 2 Go event! This event will allow you to access all the services of the DMV without the long lines. Be sure to stop by!
Still haven't gotten your Real ID? This is the perfect time to skip the long DMV lines and get yours before they are required in airports in 2020. More info below!
Beginning October 1, 2020, Virginians will need a REAL ID compliant driver’s license or ID card - or another federally approved form of identification, such as a U.S. passport or some military IDs - to board domestic flights or enter secure federal facilities.
All applicants for a REAL ID compliant credential, including current Virginia credential holders, must apply in-person, and pay a $10 one-time REAL ID surcharge in addition to standard renewal ($32 for most customers) or replacement ($20) fees. Driver’s licenses and ID cards can be renewed up to one year before the expiration date.
There are several documents that must be presented when applying for a REAL ID. You’ll need to bring physical documentation of:
· Identity and legal presence - such as an unexpired U.S. passport or U.S. birth certificate
· Proof of any name changes (if applicable) – such as marriage certificates, divorce decrees, or court orders
· Social Security Number - a Social Security card or W-2 form that shows all 9 digits
· Two proofs of residency - this can be your valid Virginia driver license with your current residential street address, voter registration card, recent utility bills, or rental lease agreement or mortgage statement
I invite you to meet with me on September 12thth from 6 pm - 8 pm at Chantilly Regional Library for my monthly office hours. Office hours will allow constituents of the 67th District to express their concerns or comments on what's happening at the state level and within the district.
If you are having difficulties signing up or are not able to attend and still wish to share your concerns and comments, please contact my office at 703-996-9415 or DelKDelaney@house.virginia.gov.
Upcoming Meet and Greets with Delegate Delaney:
Please join me in the coming weeks for some community meet and greets! These events will allow our community neighbors to meet with me one-on-one and allow you to express their concerns, issues, and hopes for our community.
Since my election, I have used my official title to bring about true and needed change for the Northern Virginia Region. As your state official, I have helped secure protections for local residents, small businesses, advocated for our transportation and infrastructure needs and I have put the people of our district before politics.
This event will be nonpolitical and will simply allow the residents of the 67th District to know me personally and learn more about current issues in our community. It would be great to meet with you and hear how I can better serve you and advocate for our community's needs. I hope you can join me for one of my upcoming events!
Upcoming Meet and Greets:
September 15th from 4-6 PM in Poplar Tree (5264 Ellicott Ct, Centreville, VA 201203)
My office is looking for hosts for a community meet and greets in the 67th District. If you, your HOA or civic association is open to hosting a meet and greet which will allow your neighbors and community to connect with me on a personal level and discuss issues you care about, please send an email to my office at DelKDelaney@house.virginia.gov or call 703-996-9415.

New HOV Lane Regulations:
On September 30, 2019, due to sunset/expiration of the relevant provision in 23 USC 166, hybrid vehicles will no longer be eligible to use HOV lanes in the Commonwealth without the requisite number of occupants. VDOT received written notice of this change from FHWA on August 26th.
On August 30th, DMV issued a joint DMV/VDOT letter to all clean special fuels license plate holders explaining the expiration of the exemption to ensure that all hybrid vehicle owners are aware that they must carry the required number of occupants in their hybrid vehicle in order to use HOV lanes anywhere in the Commonwealth. This letter will also advise the recipients of the upcoming conversion of the I-395 HOV lanes to HOT/Express lanes.
2019 Due in Course Publication:
Due Course is a selection of legislation passed by the 2019 Session of the General Assembly that is likely to affect the daily lives of citizens of Virginia. The following legislation has been signed by the Governor and will go into effect on July 1, 2019, except where an emergency clause or delayed effective date is noted.
