    Last Wednesday, April 20th, the Virginia General Assembly session reconvened in Richmond to consider Governor McAuliffe’s vetoes and amendments to legislation. The Governor returned 88 of the 811 bills passed this year, 32 with a veto and 56 with a recommended amendment.

    The failure of the General Assembly to expand Medicaid and enact fair workplace policies, combined with constant attacks on reproductive health care, reflect how the deck continues to be stacked against working women and families.

    After a marathon final day of the regular session, we adjourned sine die on March 11th--one day early. We passed the biennium budget that, while very strong on education and economic development, misses the mark on several big opportunities for the people of Virginia. The same could be said of the whole session, which had many ups and downs.

    On Thursday we considered amendments to the budget and voted on each proposal in the full House of Delegates. As expected, there were winners and losers. The big winner: Education. The big loser: Medicaid expansion. However, I have significant heartburn because we have some enormous missed opportunities.

    This week we officially completed all of the consideration of House bills and have crossed over to consider the Senate’s legislation. As I mentioned in last week’s Boysko Bulletin, we saved the most politically divisive bills for this week. After weeks of working across the aisle to find solutions to common sense problems, I was terribly disturbed and disappointed by the some of the bills that passed.

    I continue to be so pleased to see that overall, General Assembly members are willing to work together on many issues and to listen to one another about differing points of view. I am also enjoying the many visits, calls and letters from constituents and am glad to have the opportunity to listen to your concerns. This is the last week before Crossover, when all of the bills passed in House of Delegates are sent to the Senate and vice versa.

    What a big week! My first bill, HB106, a Town of Herndon charter bill passed by the House unanimously and was sent over to the Senate. The bill changes the western boundary of the Town of Herndon slightly to incorporate a couple of acres next to the Department of Public Works building on Rock Hill Road. It also brings the town charter up to date with our emergency preparedness plans.

    Many of you have contacted me about your snow concerns and we have been working with VDOT to raise attention to missed neighborhoods or other clean-up. According to VDOT, most subdivision streets should be at least passable, though I have gotten reports that many roads are in better shape. They will continue to work on snow removal throughout the week and I will continue to advocate on your behalf.

    What a week it’s been at session! I’ve introduced seven bills for this session and am co-patron for a number of bills with my colleagues on a variety of topics as well. It’s been great to see many residents of the 86th District.
