This is a transcript of the video clips in which this bill is discussed.



Del. Patrick Hope (D-Arlington): THIS IS A JUST A SLOGAN AND NOT A POLICY. I HOPE YOU WILL REJECT THE BILL

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE GENTLEMAN HAS THE FLOOR

Del. Israel O'Quinn (R-Bristol): CONSUMERS AREN'T ASKING FOR THIS? MR. SPEAKER, CONSUMERS ARE BEGGING FOR THIS. CONSUMERS ARE BEGGING FOR COMPETITION AND CHOICE IN THE MARKETPLACE TO HELP LOWER COSTS AND GIVE THEM OPTIONS BECAUSE WHAT WHAT WE HAVE NOW IN NOT WORKING. YOU WILL SEE ACTION FROM THE FEDERAL LEVEL VERY SOON. THIS IS ONE OF THE MAIN TOP THREE CHANGES THAT THEY ARE GOING TO IMPLEMENT. AND THE QUESTION IS WILL VIRGINIA BE READY? THIS BILL REQUIRES THAT OUT-OF-STATE PLANS HAVE TO REGISTER WITH THE FCC AND PROVE A FOUND FINANCIAL MISSION AND MARKETING STANDARDS AND UNFAIR TRADE PACK TIPS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE WITHIN CAPITAL AND SURPLUS REQUIREMENTS FOR LICENSURE TO MAKE SURE WHEN THIS DOES HAPPEN THAT IT WILL HAPPEN RIGHT AND IT WILL PROTECT VIRGINIA CONSUMERS WHILE GIVING THEM THE CHOICE AND LOWER COSTS THAT THEY ARE DEMANDING FROM US RIGHT NOW. THANK YOU, MR. SPEAKER.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): SHALL THE BILL PASS? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL.
