Transcript

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



Sen. Lionell Spruill (D-Chesapeake): BEEN PROVEN THAT WILL TAKE CARE OF MY EAR BUT IT COULD KILL ME, I GO SEE MY DOCTOR. HE CANNOT GUARANTEE THAT I WON'T HAVE A HEART ATTACK. LET'S TRY IT. GIVE A SISTER A BREAK. LET'S TRY IT. THERE'S NO SIDE EFFECTS THAT CAN HAPPEN. IT'S GOOD. LET'S PASS THIS BILL. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[Unknown]: THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL SENATE BILL 1298 PASS. ALL IN FAVOR --.

Sen. Lionell Spruill (D-Chesapeake): MR. PRESIDENT, IF NO ONE SELLS IS GOING TO SPEAK, I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE ONE LAST POINT, BECAUSE I REGRET THAT ONE

IT ALLOWS HIM TO TAKE CARE OF HIS FAMILY AND BE ANOTHER -- BEGIN BECOME A MEMBER OF THE COMMONWEALTH AND THAT WE DO BELIEVE IN SECOND CHOICES, AND IF THIS PERSON'S SKILLS, KNOWLEDGE AND ABILITIES SHOW THAT HE CAN HANDLE THE JOB, THAT SAYS ONE MORE PERSON ON THE EMPLOYMENT ROLLS, AND I THINK THAT'S A WONDERFUL THING, AND I WOULD ASK AGAIN THAT THIS BILL PASS. THE SENATOR FROM WESTERN FAIRFAX COUNTY, SENATOR MARSDEN.
