Will You Stand with Me Supporting Law Enforcement and Protecting Virginians' Health?

August 22, 2020
We are now in the midst of the Special Session. I filed legislation to protect Virginians' health and safety by allowing effective COVID-19 treatment with Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), legislation ensuring that vaccines are not forced on those who have health or religious conflicts, including vaccines that could be unsafe or unethical, a bill to limit the Governor and Commissioner of Health's orders, a Resolution calling for them to be ended immediately, and a Law Enforcement Transparency and Accountability bill to prevent unions from sheltering bad cops.

Is Dr. Oliver Putting Politics Ahead of Patients by Banning HCQ?

July 31, 2020
Virginia’s Commissioner of Health, Dr. Muhammad Norman Oliver, stresses “health equity” but is denying to Virginians, including those with very limited resources, the ability to obtain affordable, safe, and successful COVID-19 treatments readily available in many foreign countries with limited resources.  I wrote to Dr. Oliver yesterday, urging him to reverse his ban on treatment with Hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), noting, “The mortality rate from COVID-19 … are far higher per 100,000 population than in many other countries that use HCQ widely.” Read more here....

Northam Illegally Regulating Our Daily Lives

July 15, 2020
In a spectacular message to the court, Liberty University sides with the Tigges family in their legal battle against Governor Northam. On July 18th, the Tigges family is hosting a fundraiser; everyone is invited, details here. “…the Governor believes that he can act alone, and that his powers are virtually unlimited…” With your help this lawsuit will put him in his place. The Governor is threatening to continue current or even more mandates and restrictions, including facemasks and even forcing an unsafe vaccine, indefinitely, perhaps as long as he remains in office. These lawsuits are our best option to reign in his overreach into every area of our lives and businesses. Please read more here...

Fully Re-Open Virginia Schools!

July 10, 2020
I have heard from many of my constituents about how the 2020-2021 school year will look for our students and teachers. With the second half of the 2019-2020 school lost due to the ongoing pandemic, many are eager to see their children back in the classroom this fall. Reopening our schools during this pandemic will require safeguards to ensure the health and safety of our children, teachers, and other support staff. I understand that there were many difficulties with the way the spring classes were conducted, and that while some of those issues are hopefully improved upon this fall, many families are considering home, private or virtual schools for the fall, which are great options for many families. I see two clear top priorities: Come up with a workable plan for those who are healthy and ready for a 5-day-in-person school week  Make expansion of high speed affordable internet to under-served areas the highest priority at all levels  Read more here...

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 Petersen 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!
