Delaney Dispatch (2019 Session - Week 4)
On Tuesday, we will enter "crossover." This is the halfway point in the General Assembly where all the bills introduced by a Delegate must be heard in the House and, if supported in committee, come to the floor for a vote by the entire House of Delegates. Concurrently, this same processes must be done in the Senate with all Senate bills. Once the House and Senate have voted on their respective bills, they will crossover to the parallel body and go through the subcommittee, committee and full body approval process, once again.
This means that the coming convening of the House of Delegates will result in long days and thorough debates of final House bills, including our budget bill proposal.
Delaney Dispatch (2019 Session - Week 3)
This week in Richmond, I had the great pleasure of supporting bills which would directly improve the lives and livelihood of Virginians. Yesterday House Bill 1686, also known the "Renewables First Act", was heard before a subcommittee. This bill would prioritize the creation of new renewable energy generation facilities and temporarily halt the creation of new fossil fuel facilities, allowing green energy facilities to catch up to fossil fuel in the Commonwealth.
Delaney Dispatch (2019 Session - Week 2)
Things are buzzing in Richmond. I have had several pieces of legislation up before sub and full committees, and am proud that some of them have prevailed and are on their way to the floor of the House of Delegates. One of these pieces of legislation was inspired by a constituent who presented an issue with current Virginia code which would not allow him to meet both the standards of his industry and the law.

The 2019 General Assembly Session starts in less than 40 days! I am looking forward to heading back down to Richmond and advocating for legislation that improves lives here in the 67th District. In addition to my ongoing work of advocating for improved traffic congestion relief and creating a world-class education system, this legislative session I am tackling a variety of issues including protecting women and children, breaking down barriers for small businesses, and making Virginia greener place.

Delaney Dispatch (September 11, 2018)
Today marks the 17th anniversary 9/11, a day where 2,996 innocent lives were taken by ruthless terrorists. We must never forget the lives of those taken away from us and the brave first responders who took action during these terrorist attacks. I am continually grateful for our police, fire and military men and women who risk their lives every day. May we never forget.
