Big Changes Coming to Virginia July 1 - New Taxes, 2nd Amendment, and Much More!

June 29, 2020
I’d like to remind you that most laws passed in the 2020 Session become effective on July 1, 2020. I prepared a summary by category, which was mailed out in May. Many of these laws should not have passed, and are likely to be struck down by court challenges. I'm the last Republican Delegate representing Northern Virginia, working to undo these bad laws. Please help keep me on the job by donating before our deadline tomorrow, midnight, June 30. Read more here...

A Perfect Storm Aims to Crush Virginia Businesses

June 23, 2020
A perfect storm is an event in which a rare combination of circumstances drastically aggravates the event. Virginians were rightly optimistic last year when CNBC found Virginia to be the “Best State for Business” in the nation. Since then, the new Democrat majority in Richmond has put in motion a tsunami of horrendous new laws, which become effective on July 1, 2020. As businesses, which have not already closed for good, struggle to recover from the COVID pandemonium, the next wave is about to happen. Governor Northam signed these anti-business laws after imposing the draconian unconstitutional COVID Executive Orders on businesses. Read more here....

Oppose Higher Tolls?

June 19, 2020
I’ve worked across party lines to reduce tolls on the Dulles Greenway and am working with Loudoun County in their efforts on this important priority.  I’m happy to announce that the Loudoun Board of Supervisors took my recommendation to install a travel time electronic sign on Rt. 7 west of the Greenway to help drivers compare Rt. 7 and Greenway travel times. Last session there was strong support for tightening control of Greenway tolls, however Western Loudoun Sen. John Bell and a few other NoVa Democrats undermined the efforts after paying lip service in reelection campaigns. Read more here....

BIG NEWS - Sen. Chap Peterson Files Lawsuits Against Northam COVID Overreach!

June 9, 2020
This COVID-induced tyranny has gone way too far. How much longer will we sit idle when businesses’, individuals’, and churches’ rights are trampled, and while protesters and rioters are given a pass? Lawsuits were filed today asking a Federal court and the Virginia Supreme Court for relief.… the lawyer representing my constituent in this case is not only one of the best in this area of law, but is a sitting Democratic Senator from Fairfax County, Chap Petersen!

How and When- End the Lockdown and Fully Reopen Virginia

June 3, 2020
I have drafted a letter to the Virginia Board of Health that gives a snapshot of an argument that correctly challenges Governor Northam’s Executive Orders and asks the Virginia Board of Health to take a couple of important steps. First, under the law, the Virginia Board of Health is empowered to deal with health emergencies. That has not played out. Instead, just two men have taken control of every business, religious organization and household in Virginia; just two men, the Governor and the State Health Commissioner. That must end immediately.

Vote Today to Protect the 2A!

May 19, 2020
I just want to send a quick reminder of today's local elections, as well as one reason why these local elections are more important than ever before. Today, May 19, elections are being held for Mayor and Town Council in Berryville, Hamilton, and Round Hill. (Middleburg is also holding their elections today, but is not in the 33rd House District). Only residents within town limits are eligible to vote. Read more here....

Liberate Virginia

April 21, 2020
One need look no further than Virginia’s flag to be reminded that historically the people of the Great Commonwealth of Virginia do not tolerate tyrants, big or small; tyrants are eventually put in their place.... As protests of patriotic Americans rise up across the country, demanding government back down and allow people to exercise good judgement and reopen, I sincerely hope and pray people will take to the streets in Virginia, peacefully, to let their voices be heard in protest to this unbearable tyranny and in defense of their inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. May we sustain President Trump’s call to “Liberate Virginia”, while maintaining common-sense precautions.

Gov. Northam Needs to Hear From You - Back Off on New Taxes and Laws that Will Crush the Economy

April 10, 2020
As of this morning, Virginia's COVID-19 statistics are 35,459 people tested, 4,509 cases, 772 hospitalizations, and 121 deaths. Those stats are tragic, and represent many lives changed and lost, but there are even bigger numbers to be concerned about. Yesterday morning we learned that over 300,000 Virginians have lost their jobs in the last three weeks alone (March 15-April 4).

URGENT ACTION NEEDED: Tell Gov. Northam He Must Rein in Spending & Hold up Burdensome Bills

April 4, 2020
I hope you and your families are managing as well as can be expected in these trying times. I want to update you on my actions in response to the health and economic crisis, as well as some resources which are available to individuals and businesses. 160,000 of our friends and neighbors in the Commonwealth lost their jobs in the two weeks between March 15-28, and countless more this week. Virginia’s biennial budget proposes significant spending that is non-essential and that must be curtailed. We need to stop any additional taxes and regulations that would stall a recovery.
