Sen. Bill Carrico (R-Grayson): TO THE SENATOR FROM EASTERN FAIRFAX, I THINK NOW THIS HAS BECOME A GOOD REPUBLICAN BILL. [ LAUGHTER ]

[Unknown]: THE SENATOR FROM WESTERN FAIRFAX -- YOU'VE SPOKEN TWRICE, SO I'M GOING TO LET YOU SPEAK, BUT MAKE IT BRIEF. MR. PRESIDENT, I'M JUST SHOCKED AT THE ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR
HE THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE SENATOR FROM AUGUSTA COUNTY, SENATOR HANGAR. THANK YOU, SPEAKING TO THE BILL. SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR. THANK YOU. AS SOMEONE WHO REPRESENTS AN AREA, AND FOOD SAFETY ISSUE IS SOMETHING THAT IS IMPACTED BY IT. I HOPE THE BODY WOULD SUPPORT THE MEASURE. THANK YOU, SENATOR. THANK YOU, I RISE IN SUPPORT OF THE BILL. RANDOMNESS OF THESE INSPECTIONS IF DAILY, YOU DON'T ANNOUNCE HEALTH INSPECTIONS AHEAD OF TIME WHEN I RAN A FACILITY FOR CHILDREN IN A DETENTION HOME. I WAS EXPECTED TO LIVE BY RULES IN BETWEEN INSPECTIONS SO THE RANDOMNESS IS AN IMPORTANT PIECE. AND I URGE YOU TO SUPPORT THE BILL. THANK YOU. THE QUESTION SHALL SENATE BILL 1195 PASS? ALL IN FAVOR RECORD AYE. OPPOSED NO. HAVE SENATORS VOTED? DO ANY SENATORS DESIRE TO CHANGE VOTES? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE ROLL. AYE, 25, NO, 15. THE BILL PASSES. SENATE BILL 1224. A BILL RELATING TO LAND OWNER LIABILITY RECREATIONAL ACCESS. SENATOR FROM STAFFORD, SENATOR STEWART. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. I MOVE THE BILL PASS AND SPEAKING TO THE MEASURE. SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR. MR. PRESIDENT, SENATE BILL 1224 GIVES IMMUNITY TO A PRIVATE LAND OWNER IF ENTERING INTO A AGREEMENT FOR THE JUICE USE OF LAND TO BE AVAILABLE.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE QUESTION IS SHALL BILL 1224 PASS? THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. OPPOSED, NO. ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE? DO ANY SENATORS CHANGE TO CHANGE VOTES? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL.

Sen. Barbara Favola (D-Arlington): THE BILL PASSES. SENATE BILL 1315. SENATOR CARRICO. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT, SPEAKING TO THE BILL. SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR.

[Unknown]: THIS BILL WOULD ALLOW A FOSTER CARE HOME GIVER TO BE ABLE TO STORE A WEAPON IN WITH THE AMMUNITION LOCKED IN A SAFE PLACE, AWAY FROM THOSE CHILDREN. CURRENTLY REQUIRING A WEAPON LOB TO BEINGED IN ONE LOCATION. AND ALLOWS AN INDIVIDUAL TO BE P POSSESSION WITH THE WEAPON ON THEM. A LOT OF THESE FOSTER CARE HOMES ARE PROHIBITIVE TO LAW ENFORCEMENT BECAUSE IF THEY WALK INTO THE HOME OR ARE A FOSTER PARENT THEY COULDN'T BE IN POSSESSION OF A WEAPON. THIS ALLOWS AN INDIVIDUAL TO CARRY A WEAPON ON THEIR PERSON AND ALLOWS THEM TO PUT A WEAPON IN THE CLOSET CURRENTLY, IF I'M A CARE GIVER I CAN BE IN A VEHICLE AND THERE IS NO RESTRICTIONS.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL SENATE BILL 1315 PASS? ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL.

[Unknown]: BILL PASSES. SENATE BILL 1491. SENATOR FROM STAFFORD, SENATOR STEWART SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR. THIS JUST CLARIFIES UNDER THE TOURISM DEFINITION, YOU CAN ACTUALLY RENT YOUR FARM HOUSE OUT ON THE FARM OR RANCH AND AIN'T GOT NOTHING TO DO WITH AIR BNB.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): WE HAVE -- WOULD THE GENTLEMAN FROM SPOTSYLVANIA YIELD FROM A QUESTION?

[Unknown]: FROM STAFFORD? YES. HE YIELDS. I YIELD. I READ THE BILL AND I THOUGHT IT WAS ABOUT RENTING LAND. WHEN YOU SAID RENT OUT THE HOUSE I THOUGHT JUST TO AN AUTHORITY. IS THAT TO THE AUTHORITY OR PUBLIC? THE SENATOR FROM STAFFORD. MR. PRESIDENT, I THINK YOU CAN ALREADY DO THIS BUT A QUESTION AROSE AND THIS CLARIFIES IT. THERE ARE ACTIVITIES YOU CAN DO ON FARMS. AND THIS INCLUDES THE ABILITY TO RENT SINGLE FAMILY RESIDENTS FOR THE FARM HOUSE OUT TO SOMEONE FOR NOT LESS THAN A WEEK. SO IT'S NOT A LIGHTLY THING. THANK YOU. MR. PRESIDENT, ONE OF THE THINGS WE HAVE DONE IS THAT WE HAVE TAKEN DEFINITION OF AGRICULTURE AND EXPANDED IT TO WHAT WOULD, COMMERCIAL BUSINESSES AND NEW WE'RE TAKING WHAT WOULD BE A RENTAL HOUSING SITUATION, WHICH A ZONING, LOCALITY MAY WANT TO REGULATE, AND NOW, WE'RE GOING TO EXEMPT THAT FROM LOCAL ZONING. IF LOOKING AT THE STATUTE, IT TALKS ABOUT ACTIVE ACTIVITIES. YOU GO TO A FARM AND RANCH AND LOOK AT ANIMALS AND PET THEM. NOW WE'RE TALKING ABOUT STAYING THERE. YOU CAN SAY IT IS THE KIND OF THE SAME CONCEPT, WHETHER OR NOT WE'RE GOING TO LOU RENTAL HOUSING WITHIN THAT JURISDICTION. I DON'T THINK THIS HAS A LOT TO DO WITH AGRICULTURE BUT I DO THINK IT WOULD ERODE LOCAL AUTHORITY IN A NEW WAY. THANK YOU.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE QUESTION IS SHALL SENATE BILL 1451 PASS? THOSE IN FAVOR SAY AYE. OPPOSED, NO. ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE?

THEY'RE HERE TO TALK TO THEIR REPRESENTATIVES ABOUT THE NEED TO EXPAND AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND TO END HOMELESS HERE IN VIRGINIA. ONE PART OF THIS GROUP IS FROM MY PERSONAL FAVORITE CHARITY OF ALL TIME, AND THAT'S CORNERSTONES. ONE THING I'M SURE WE CAN ALL AGREE ON HERE IN THE SENATE IS THAT DECENT AFFORDABLE HOUSING IS NOT ONLY IMPORTANT TO FAMILY SECURITY AND STABILITY. IT'S ALSO THE CORNERSTONE OF HEALTHY COMMUNITIES.

NOTING THAT IT'S BLACK HISTORY MONTH, IT'S NOTEWORTHY THAT IN 1948, EASTERN MENNONITE BECAME ONE OF THE FIRST SOUTHERN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES TO ADMIT A BLACK STUDENT, AND THEY ARE VERY PROUD OF THAT PART OF THEIR HERITAGE. ALSO THEY CONTRIBUTE IN A LOT OF WAYS TO THE DIVERSITY WE HAVE IN HARRISONBURG. YOU MAY NOT THINK OF HARRISONBURG AS BEING A VERY DIVERSE AREA. HOWEVER, WE HAVE OVER 70 LANGUAGES SPOKEN IN OUR CITY PUBLIC SCHOOLS. AT EASTERN MENNONITE UNIVERSITY, 75% OF THE FACULTY HAVE LIVED OR WORKED INTERNATIONALLY, AND THEY CONTRIBUTE A GREAT DEAL TO THE VIE -- DIVERSITY. THEY HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT, MR. PRESIDENT, DR.
