Delegate Roxann Robinson appointed to the Select Committee on School Safety

March 8, 2018
  Virginia House of Delegates Speaker Kirk Cox announced on Thursday the formation of the “House Select Committee on School Safety” to review state and local policy on school safety and make recommendations for consideration by the General Assembly during the 2019 Session. Delegate Roxann Robinson was appointed by Speaker Cox to serve on the Select Committee. “Ensuring our children are safe while attending school should be our number one priority in the Virginia House of Delegates,” said Delegate Roxann Robinson (R- Chesterfield) “I applaud Speaker Cox for the formation of this Select Committee, and I look forward to working with the other members to propose meaningful solutions.” This is the first select committee formed in the House in 155 years. Select Committees are reserved for matters of considerable significance that cross the jurisdiction of conventional and established standing committees. Speaker Cox sent a letter to the Clerk of the House of Delegates on Thursday outlining the scope, membership and work plan of the Committee. “The House of Delegates led the effort in recent years to make our schools safer, but the tragedy in Parkland, Florida shows us that we must be ever-vigilant when it comes to school safety. We are taking a bold and significant step today to make school safety a top priority of the House of Delegates,” said Speaker Kirk Cox (R-Colonial Heights). “Delegate Robinson will bring a unique perspective to the Select Committee, and I look forward to the ideas that she will contribute to the important work ahead of the committee.” In his letter to the Clerk, Cox specifically limited the committee’s scope of work to strengthening emergency preparedness, hardening school security infrastructure, implementing security best practices, deploying additional security personnel, providing additional behavioral health resources for students, and developing prevention protocols at primary and secondary institutions across the Commonwealth. The committee will not discuss issues related to guns or broader behavioral health policy that are being considered by other commissions or standing committees. The committee also will not consider security at institutions of higher education, many of which already have rigorous security requirements and are governed by national accrediting agencies that set guidelines for their security.   # # # The post Delegate Roxann Robinson appointed to the Select Committee on School Safety appeared first on Roxann Robinson.

Roxann Robinson’s Education Platform

August 31, 2017
What a quick summer!  It’s hard to believe school starts again this Tuesday, September 5th!  In addition to reminding drivers to be aware of little pedestrians and wishing everyone a safe school year, I want to take a moment to share my direction for education. Education is one of my greatest priorities because I know students are the future of the Commonwealth.  As a member of the Education Committee, the SOL Innovation Committee, and School Readiness Committee, I have a great opportunity to prevent regulations from being implemented that would further burden teachers, stifle education, and an opportunity to even out the playing friend for our most vulnerable children. Many teachers have shared with me the hindrances to providing a good education for their students, most of which can be summed up as excessive regulation.  So, I’m working to minimize those difficulties and keep the decision-making process with the local school boards. I’ve worked to reduce the number of mandatory SOL tests, to require 65% of education funding be spent in the classroom where students will benefit, pay raise for our hard working teachers, and to abolish regulations that prevent local school boards from deciding their start date. Although I’ve been unsuccessful on eliminating the school start date restriction, I’m pleased to report we are headed in the right direction with SOL tests.  We have reduced the required number of SOLs from 22 to 17 before students enter high school.  Further, here in Chesterfield County, the public-school system exceeds the standard and puts 68% of their funding in the classrooms. I’ve supported anti-bullying programs and have added school security officers to each school because students learn best in a safe environment. Going forward, my goal remains the same: an education system that allows every student to get the best education possible.  This means continuing to reduce SOL pressure that results in teaching to the test.  It means working to improve school readiness.  Families who prefer alternative routes of education through private or home instruction can make those decisions to benefit their children.  And, it means we work on increasing school choice in the public sector. I always appreciate hearing from families and teachers, what their lives are like and how we can continue to improve education in Virginia, so I hope you will share your perspective. With that being said, I wish everyone a safe and productive school year! Best regards, Roxann L. Robinson, O.D. The post Roxann Robinson’s Education Platform appeared first on Roxann Robinson.

Delegate Roxann Robinson, O.D. Appointed to the Newly Formed PANDAS and PANS Advisory Council

July 27, 2017
  Richmond, VA –  This week, Delegate Roxann Robinson (R – Chesterfield) was appointed to the Advisory Council on Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections and Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome, also known as, PANDAS and PANS by Speaker William J. Howell in conformance with the provisions of § 32.1-73.9 of the Code of Virginia.  Dr. Robinson, a passionate advocate for children’s health, was a co-sponsor of legislation to enact the Council. In response to the appointment, Del. Robinson said, “I look forward to joining the PANDAS and PANS Advisory Council.  Together, we will be able to help our children by conducting research, finding a treatment, and educating the public about PANDAS and PANS.” PANDAS and PANS are severely misdiagnosed among children, often causing frequent or constant strep throat and can lead to the development of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, tics, personality changes, anxiety, and much more. Families affected by PANDAS and PANS often face financial hardships associated with the high cost of misdiagnosis.  One out of every 200 children are affected by this serious health condition. Joining Dr. Robinson on the council are Del. Richard Bell (R – Staunton), Del. Eileen Filler-Corn (D -Fairfax), and Del. Gordon Helsel (R – Poquoson). ### The post Delegate Roxann Robinson, O.D.

Eye On the General Assembly – Voters File Lawsuit Against Governor Terry McAuliffe’s Executive Order

May 23, 2016
Attorneys for General Assembly Republicans are filing suit in the Supreme Court of Virginia to halt enforcement of Governor Terry McAuliffe’s (D) order restoring the political rights of more than 206,000 convicted felons, Speaker of the House William J. Howell (R-Stafford) and Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment, Jr. (R-James City) announced Monday. Six Virginia voters, including Howell and Norment, are asking the Supreme Court to issue writs of mandamus and prohibition to stop the implementation of the order.  In accordance with Supreme Court rules, the petition will be filed with the Court later today, after the Respondents receive notice. To read the full filing click here. “The Constitution of Virginia forbids this unprecedented assertion of executive authority,” the filing states. “Governor McAuliffe’s executive order defies the plain text of the Constitution, flouts the separation of powers, and has no precedent in the annals of Virginia history.  The Governor simply may not, with a stroke of the pen, unilaterally suspend and amend the Constitution.” “Governor Terry McAuliffe exceeded the authority granted to him by the Virginia Constitution and we simply cannot ignore this unprecedented executive overreach,” said Speaker Howell.  “Along with fellow citizens, we are asking the Supreme Court of Virginia to stop the implementation of the order and any similar orders he may issue in the future. The case against the Governor’s executive order is overwhelming.  A plain reading of the Constitution, 240 years of practice, and precedent-setting Virginia Supreme Court cases lead to the unambiguous conclusion that the Governor’s order is unconstitutional and cannot stand.” “The Governor has willfully ignored constitutional limitations on his power, demonstrating his complete and total disregard for the Commonwealth, the people of Virginia, and the principles of representative government,” Majority Leader Norment said.  “We have three separate and co-equal branches of government to serve as checks and balances to prevent abuses of power.  To fulfill the legislative branch’s constitutional duty to check the excesses of executive power, we are compelled to challenge this order.  The weight of the case against the Governor’s action is staggering, and we are confident we will prevail on the merits.” Six Virginia voters are filing suit in the Virginia Supreme Court challenging Governor Terry McAuliffe’s executive order restoring the political rights of more than 206,000 convicted felons. The petitioners are: House Speaker William J. Howell; Fredericksburg, VA Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment; Williamsburg, VA Bill C. Cleveland; Alexandria, VA; Former Vice-Mayor Marianne Gearhart; Fairfax Station, VA Brett Hall; Coeburn, VA Hunter Slemp; Dryden, VA The petitioners are asking the Supreme Court to: Issue a writ of mandamus against the Governor, the Secretary of the Commonwealth, the Board of Elections and the Department of Elections commanding them to require the Commonwealth’s registrars not to register felons based on the April 22 order and to cancel all invalid registrations made since April 22. Issue a writ of prohibition against the Governor, the Secretary of the Commonwealth, the Board of Elections and the Department of Elections prohibiting them from permitting the registration of any felon based […] The post Eye On the General Assembly – Voters File Lawsuit Against Governor Terry McAuliffe’s Executive Order appeared first on Roxann Robinson.

Eye On the General Assembly – Week 6

February 26, 2016
On Sunday the House of Delegates Committee on Appropriations proposed a biannual budget that includes no tax or fee increases, takes steps to eliminate future liabilities, and makes strategic investments in K-12 and higher education. The House budget is a conservative, responsible, and structurally-balanced budget.  General fund spending has decreased by 5% over 10 years when adjusted for population and inflation. Here are some highlights from the House budget. The proposed budget deposits $605 million in the state’s rainy day fund. Fully funds the annual contributions to the Virginia Retirement System at 100% of the Board certified rates which re-pays the funds deferred from VRS in 2010, six years ahead of schedule. Exceeds the Governor’s investment in K-12 education by nearly $70 million while increasing flexibility for local schools and reducing tax burden on local government. Includes $83.3 million for a 2% teacher pay raise in the second year of the budget. Re-establishes the lottery proceeds distribution, sending $272 million back to localities with almost no strings attached.  This sends 31% of lottery proceeds back to local schools by FY18.  The House goal is to fully restore the 40% distribution, which was the policy prior to 2010. Includes $3.2 million to fully fund the House legislative proposals on domestic violence. Includes $2 million to expand domestic violence prevention, treatment and counseling programs and services for women and children. Includes $5 million for rapid re-housing efforts. Rapid re-housing funding is used to provide safe shelter for veterans and victims of domestic violence. The House budget invests $28.9 million in new funding to build a stronger healthcare safety net, including funding for substance abuse treatment, to create two new PACT teams, and increase eligibility for the GAP program to 80% of FPL. Creates new DD waiver slots to address the critical waiting list. Includes $197.9 million for a 3% pay raise in the first year of the budget for state employees, college faculty and state-supported local employees. The Governor’s budget proposal provided a pay raise in the second year. The budget also sets aside $28.2 million in FY18 to implement the findings and recommendations of Speaker Howell’s Commission on State Employee Retirement Security and Pension Reform. Over the coming weeks budget negotiations will go on between the House, Senate and Governor’s Office. The final budget will be voted on during the last week of the 2016 General Assembly Session. To see the budget in its entirety please visit http://budget.lis.virginia.gov. As always, I appreciate hearing from my constituents. Please stay in touch and let me know your thoughts on issues important to you. You may contact my office by emailing me at delrrobinson@virginia.house.gov or by calling (804) 698-1027.
