KEEP LISTENING TO YOUR TEACHERS AND ALWAYS OBEY YOUR MOM AND DAD, AND YOU'LL BE IN GREAT SHAPE. I'D ASK THE MEMBERS OF THE SENATE TO PLEASE JOIN ME IN OFFERING MS. LISA WALL MEYER AND HER SON R.J. THE WARM WELCOME OF THE SENATE. (APPLAUSE).

Sen. Emmett Hanger (R-Mount Solon): THE SENATOR FROM ACCOMACK COUNTY, SENATOR LEWIS.

Sen. Lynwood Lewis (D-Accomac): MR. PRESIDENT, RISE FOR AN INTRODUCTION.

[Unknown]: THE NEAR HAS THE -- SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR.

Sen. Lynwood Lewis (D-Accomac): TODAY WE HAVE OVER 150 UNITED METHODISTS FROM AROUND THE STATE ATTENDING THEIR 25th METHODIST DAY HERE IN THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY. SOME ARE WITH US IN THE GALLERY SOME ARE WITH THE OTHER BODY. ALONG WITH THEM IS THEIR NEW BISHOP LEWIS. THEY HAVE BEEN VISITING SENATORS, COMMITTEE MEETINGS, RESEARCHING BILLS AND BECOME CAN FAMILIAR WITH ALL THE BUILDINGS HERE ON THE CAMPUS. THEIR THEME FOR THE DAY IS 25 YEARS OF FAITH AND JUSTICE, AND THEY HOPE TO CONTINUE PUTTING THEIR FAITH TO WORK FOR THE NEXT 25 YEARS. SO WITH THAT, MR. PRESIDENT, I HOPE YOU WILL JOIN ME IN GIVING THEM THE WARM WELCOME OF THE SENATE.

[Unknown]: THANK YOU, SENATOR. WOULD MEMBERS FROM THE UNITED METHODIST DELEGATION PLEASE RISE. SENATOR, THEY MAY BE VIEWING FROM ANOTHER ROOM, BUT WE CERTAINLY APPRECIATE THEM BEING ON THE CAPITOL TODAY, AND WE HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT VISIT TO MR. JEFFERSON'S CAPITOL.

THE SENATOR FROM JAMES CITY COUNTY, SENATOR NORMENT.

FIRST OF ALL, THE SENATOR FROM AUGUSTA WAS VERY KIND TO INTRODUCE LISA WALLMEYER AND HER SON R.J. THE SENATOR FROM FRANKLIN WHO WAS CHAIRING LOCAL GOVERNMENT THIS MORNING WOULD PROBABLY BE PLEASED TO KNOW THAT I TRIED TO GET R.J. TO PRESENT THE AIR B AND B BILL, BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT WOULD GO A LOT QUICKER, AND I EVEN OFFERED TO HOLD HIM UP SO HE COULD BE SEEN, BUT HE RESPECTFULLY DECLINED. YOUR HONOR -- EXCUSE ME, MR. PRESIDENT, THERE ARE TWO GROUPS IN THE GALLERY THAT I WOULD LIKE FOR YOU TO EXTEND A WARM WELCOME TO. THE FIRST IS THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUBS ALLIANCE, AND I THINK ALL OF YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH THE EXTRAORDINARY WORK THAT THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA DOES. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE FOUND INTERESTING IS THAT IT SUPPORTS MORE THAN 75,000 SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN IN 111 DIFFERENT SITES IN 50 CITIES IN THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA. SO I WOULD APPRECIATE IT IF YOU WOULD EXTEND A VERY WARM WELCOME TO THE DIRECTOR OF GOVERNMENT RELATIONS WHO IS RONALD MCNEIL, AND EVEN THOUGH HE IS PREVIOUSLY -- HE HAS PREVIOUSLY BEEN RECOGNIZED, THERE IS ALSO THE FORMER EXTRAORDINARY AND ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL DELEGATES IN THE HISTORY OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, MR. ALLEN DIAMONDSTEEN IS UP THERE. I WOULD EXTEND MY APOLOGIZE TO THE BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB FOR MISSING THEIR RECEPTION THIS MORNING, BUT THE SENATOR FROM
