Gentlewoman from Norfolk, miss Hester .
Daun Hester
Mr. Speaker, I rise for a point of personal privilege.
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor.
Daun Hester
Thank you, members of the House, I would like to share with you a piece of history of john punch. During the early 1600s, an after rick minute american -- african man came to work for hue gwen, a wealthy member of the House. Punch was only one among thousands of people who migrated with no pay followed by freedom, and the right to earn wages and start businesses. However, freedom was not to be for john punch. After working as an indentured servant, it turned against him, instead of being freed, he became the first legal slave in america. Punch's job was to work as a waterman in the fills alongside irish, scottish indentured servants, to work and then to become a free man, earning his own wages. While punch was working, he met two other indentured servants, a dutchman and the men became comrades and decided to escape to flee to the eastern shore of maryland where they hoped they can live free. Running away was a violation of indentured servitude and bounty hunters found them and they were shackled and tried for the crime of running away under indentured labor contract. However, when the three men went to trial, john punch was treated differently from the two other run aways, victor the ire yashman and James gregory the scot were sentenced to longer indentured, adding more years to their time, but when it came to john punch, the council did not just sentence him to four more years but to serve as a slave for the rest of his life. The cruel and unfair court sentence is the first recorded situation of a Black man being classified as a slave for life, giving him the unfortunate status of the first official slave in the english colonies. His case is recorded as the first legal sanctioning and laid legal framework where millions of americans were brought to america to be enslaved and work without pay. The legal decision was the first time a legal distinction was made in Virginia between europeans who still worked in dentured servitude status alongside africans. John punch survived, he got married, had children and established a family dynasty that lives today. Sometimes, in the 1630s, you know, he married a white female indentured, servant, yeah. And by 1637, they started their family with their son, referred to as john bunch the first, as the first mixed couple documented in the colonies Mr. And Mrs. John punch left traceable descendants and became bunch. One of the well known descendants is the diplomat, ralph bunch, the first to win the nobel Peace prize and serve as a united nations diplomat. Also, lony bunch, the founding director of the smithsonian african american museum of history and culture scheduled to open in 2016. Wow, what a great legacy. Thank you for listening and learning about another historical event in african american history.

The Virginia farm bureau programs are the future of agriculture in our commonwealth, geared towards young farmers introduction. 18-35, who have an interest in agriculture and want to make a difference in Virginia 's largest industry and local communities, focusing on developing leadership skills and providing networking opportunities. I'm pleased to introduce the young farmers visiting in the gallery. I would like to also point out that in the group, I want to call your attention to chris van Black. He runs a custom hay operation and working as a conservation technician for the soil and water conservation district. His farming operation specializes in square baling small acreage farming. He took top honors in the competition at the 97 farm bureau convention, this discussion meeting simulates a committee meeting in which active participation are expected. Participants are evaluated on their ability to exchange ideas and information on predetermined agricultural topics. The final topic is how farm bureau members can influence state and national policies in a political atmosphere that favors increased regulations on farmers. And just in case that doesn't sound like a big deal, I want to make sure you understand how big of an honor. He received a choice between a chevy sierra, courtesy of gm and rentaling station to afbf 2016 leadership conference next week in kansas city, missouri so please join me in welcoming these young farmers and 2016 chevy silverrad yes or congratulating chris van Black on his achievements, thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the House I just wanted to very briefly say to all of you it is good to be back in this old and venerable House. After being in my hometown tending to something many of us have attended to or will be. There is nothing comparable as being able to hold your father as he breathes out his last and breathes in eternity. There is no description for that. Many of us have experienced that and I know that because you've called me, e-mailed me, hugged me on the floor. It's been a reassuring thing, Mr. Speaker and so, on behalf of my family, I would like to express our heart felt appreciation to all of you. It's almost oversed what a difference 90 miles makes. Because any policy concerns aside, in the end when any of us have a personal challenge we're all here for one another. God bless all of you. Thank you Mr. Speaker.

I thank the gentleman and our prayers are with you and your family.

Veterans services foundation. Very nice, harmless, I 'm sure, just months ago, possibly a season ago, Mr. Speaker, the good people of culpepper were regaled about the burden of government. My, my, if the yolk of government had not been on our shoulders we might have been pine bluff, arkansas or maybe let's check the statement. According to veterans service there is no physical impact anticipated as a result of the bill. Ha. Can you imagine? No fiscal impact? That must be some kind of pointy headed bureaucrat sitting in his hattiesberg mississippi now. Cubicle that come up with that because we know for every action there is an opposite and equal reaction. I think shakespeare said that. Anyway, Mr. Speaker, how is aunt betty going to get to the meeting? Is she going to ride her bike from troutville? Or -- that was supposed to be funny, but anyway. When the meeting is in Arlington, speaking of cost, it's going to be $17 just inside of the beltway. So, Mr. Speaker, what we're witnessing here is tool number three in the obama-mcauliffe administration play book. Start small, before you know it, it's huge. All right. I'll wait. Ladies and gentlemen I urge you to give this bill it's due and think about future taxpayers and vote no. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Bill Howell
Gentleman from Spotsylvania, Mr. Cole.
Mark Cole
This is a liberty loving bill. It allows an additional light to be forward facing on motorcycles and will improve visibility of motorcycles and their safety and I hope it will be the will of the body to engross the bill and pass it to third reading.
[Unknown]
House bill 64 a bill to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia relating to the establishment of an electronic filing system in the general district court acceptability of electronic media reporting to committee on courts of justice with a substitute.
Mark Cole

[Unknown]
Substitute agreed to.
Terry Kilgore
Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, House bill 64 has shown in the subject to states upon agreement between a chief judge and general district court and clerk in the circuit court that being transmit cases appealed, hope it be the pleasure of the House to engross the bill and pass it to third reading.
[Unknown]
House bill 70 a bill to amend and reenact two section of the code of Virginia related to issues of warrants for law enforcement by a magistrate with amendments.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Manassas, Mr. Miller.
Jackson Miller
Mr. Speaker, House bill 70, basically requires that magistrates do not issue misdemeanor warrants against police officers where the accuser is, has been arrested by such police officers. Does not allow police officers to get scot-free if they do commit a misdemeanor just requires the commonwealth attorney investigate a case before a warrant is issued. I move the bill engrossed and passed to third reading.
[Unknown]
Questions on adoption of the committee substitute. Those in favor say aye. Amendments are agreed to.
Jackson Miller
House bill 117, a bill to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia related to permits for excessive size.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from from Virginia beach, Mr. Knight.
Barry Knight
Mr. Speaker, House bill 117 allows for a statewide permit to haul boats over 102 inches but not more than 108 inches. Mr. Speaker, I move the House engross the bill and pass to third reading.
[Unknown]
House bill 170 to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia related to possession of controlled paraphernalia. With a substitute.
Barry Knight
Gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Albo.
Dave Albo
Mr. Speaker, I move the substitute.
Bill Howell
Those in favor say aye. Opposed, no. Substitute agreed to. Gentleman from Fairfax .
Dave Albo
Mr. Speaker, this deals with drug paraphernalia. When a person gets charged for having a pipe, a bong or rolling paper, right now, they get a criminal record for distribution which looks bad when you're trying to get a job, so what we do here is separate distribution into one section and possession into another. We don't change punishments, just helps the person have a more accurate criminal record.
[Unknown]
House bill 176 a bill to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia related to installation of trap and trace device.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Mr. Albo.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, members of the House, this is something I 'm surprised we haven't had to do a long time ago. Back in the old days when everybody had a phone on their wall or table, the police would get, if they wanted to do a wire tap would get permission to do a wire tap and had to do it where the person lives. Now, they're mobile and everywhere, obviously, so this bill says the police can get the wire tap in a court where a crime was being committed, or May be committed. I hope it be the pleasure of the House to enbros the bill.
[Unknown]
House bill 189 to a bill to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia related to satisfaction identity, united states passport book and passport card.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Mr. Bulova.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, it clears up confusing language with the types of identification that a notary public could use and clarifies both of which are issued by the department of state. The bill also clarifies that any identification must be unexpired in order to be valid. Mr. Speaker, I move the bill engrossed and passed to third reading.
[Unknown]
Thank you.
[Unknown]
House bill 267 a bill to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia related to length of vehicles.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Danville, Mr. Marshal.
Danny Marshall
Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House this is clarifying language and it says that no motor should be operated on the highway over 40 feet. We have motor homes over 40 that are currently being operated and says the combination of vehicles coupled together should not be a total of 65. I move that we engross the bill and move it to third reading.
[Unknown]
Thank you.
Danny Marshall
House bill 289 a bill to amend the code of Virginia related to local regulation with an amendment.
[Unknown]
Mr. Helsel.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, I move the committee amendments.
[Unknown]
Those in favor say aye. Opposed, no. The amendment is agreed to.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, House bill 289 gives localities the option to adopt an ordinance to regulate the operation of cars and jet skis on flooded streets. We're facing more flooded events on Hampton roads. Flood waters are being pushed into their homes from jet ski vehicles because there is a wake. For public safety and this bill would save many homeowners from flooding insurance claims, Mr. Speaker, I move that we engross the bill and move it to third reading.
[Unknown]
House bill 386 reporting to the committee of courts and justice with a substitute.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Albo.
Dave Albo
Mr. Speaker, I move the substitute.
[Unknown]
Those in favor say aye. Opposed.

So when this bill says is when the victim is less than 18 and there is evidence that a criminal evidence that the isb provider can be ordered quiet about it for 90 days.

Ladies and gentlemen of the House, it provides a judge with property declared as operate separate. Currently if something classified separate, the jury doesn't have jurisdiction to separate the property, however, sometimes, property designated as separate is in the hands of the other party. What the code does is forces the person to file a Suit to order the return of the property until surviving spouse to all it does is give the judge a discretion to return an order without need for an additional lawsuit that will achieve judicial efficiency.

Questions on adoption of the committee substitute. Those in favor say aye, opposed, no. Substitute agreed to.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, this is the go Virginia bill which I have spoken on on the floor. Let me welcome mechanics. It's a complicated bill. Keep in mind the purpose of go Virginia is to bottom up proposals from the business community working collaboration with local government, and k 12. The way the bill is laid out, it establishes Virginia growth and opportunity board and the board is made up of 21 people, 11 of those are from the business community and it has legislative representation including the chairman of appropriations, three Senate members including the chairman of Senate finance and three appointments. And so that is how the state board works. This is a special nonreverting fund designated to promote economic growth and vie verse fiction. The first part of the fund is where every region about two pdcs. Every region can decide what are the skills gaps? So that is what and how theed money in the first year works. There will be two pots of money, on a per capita basis. And to whether rural or urban, you'd have a shot of the money. The second, there is a nonreverting piece. The second piece deals with sort of a competitive araefrngment. One or more regions can come together and they can sort of get the second poll of money. And finally, they'll be scored and will score them on criteria you will like, return on investment. How much local, private funding match is there? The more match you have, the higher you'll be scored. Low overhead or cost savings you come up with. The more, obviously the higher the score. That is how it works. The whole theory is different approach. A business is a working with local government owe drive good projects. These are start up grant projects, they'll be 3 to 5 years, not meant to replace the governor's opportunity fund. I consider that a fund that goes to get working together in local regions to help with other projects. With that explanation, I 'd like to yield to the gentleman from Prince William, Mr. Torian for remarks.
Luke Torian
Thank you.
[Unknown]
Delighted.
Luke Torian
Sorry. Gentleman from Prince William .

Bob Marshall
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, before most members were here, we considered a proposal from the disney corporation to build an interchange for michael eisner. Would have cost $145 million. He was making $209 million a year. I voted against this subsidy, because I don't like government subsidizing business in this fashion. This isn't a case of at least the disney measure, this bridge is going to be built. No. This was a special favor to eisner. I built out that king's dominion built their own middle change. What you're doing is getting business in bed with an entity that has power to tax or except from taxation to, forgive taxes that are delayed. You're dealing with an entity that are dealing with sanctions, business can't do that. You're dealing with an entity some of whose members May want campaign donations from businesses and with a circumstance of awarding special contracts, favored contracts to favored businesses. And it is a little bit surprising to me that conservatives that talk about free market are now out of here, not a motive, talking about the effect, that some businesses should get a free ride. Whatever businesses do normally, where making the road very easy for a certain, select class of business. I don't think this is prudent in the long run and vote a vote against this on third reading.

Mr. Speaker, I want to thank co-patrons Delegate James could not be here today. I appreciate what he did to move this forward. House bill 856 is a companion of the bill we just heard. This bill kind is a laser. What we're trying to do here if the localities went to a joint agreement to share costs in local revenues from economic development, let's say to agree to market a new research park then we will track income tax revenue and will provide a grant back to participating localities. What happened is that some engage in self destructive localities. This is a new program. And finance, appropriations we look at credits and one of the things we've been good at is putting a sunset clause on this to force us, is it working? This is a good program and is a complement to the earlier bill.

Mr. Speaker, this came out of kelsey Smith act, a national movement. A state Senator 's daughter out Mr ., in missouri she was kidnapped. And the fact of the matter is that the police have gone to the cellular carrier and said ping the phone to tri to find her. They knew she had a cell phone on it. They couldn't do it for three days. They immediately, once they got permission they found her, dead. Within about a half an hour, so the thought is that if they'd pinged it right away they might have had the opportunity to save this woman's life. When there is an emergency situation or some woman or young person or anyone has been taken kidnapped or abducted it gives the ability to quickly ping that phone so it hope it will save the life. I hope it be the will of the body to engross the bill and pass to third reading.

House bill 932 a bill to amend and reenact section of the code of Virginia related to compensation of court-appointed counsel reporting to committee on courts of justice.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Charlottesville, Mr. Toscano.
David Toscano
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House for those of you who don't practice law and don't do criminal law, you might not be aware of the fact for court-appointed counsel, people appointed to represent indigent defendants get paid a flat fee usually for a misdemeanor and flat fee for felony. And in no way, corresponds with the time and effort put into their cases. In certain kind of complex cases, however, these counsels can request a waiver from their court-appointed fee to get more money to reflect the additional work they put in to the case, that fund is a pot of money in that fund every year. Every, almost every single year, the waiver requests exceed the amount of money in the fund. In other words, the money runs out. That is a big problem for the commonwealth of Virginia. This bill does not fix that problem. There is a budget amendment up there in appropriations that would fix the problem, what this bill does is requires the executive secretary of the supreme court to provide more frequent notice about the status of the fund, where it is, when it is about to run out of money. So I move that the body engross the bill and pass it to third reading.

Manoli Loupassi
Tos, Mr. Speaker. My seat mate is giving me a hard time because I read this bill. If you look at lines 18-20 in the substitute, because it says says that, a private animal shelter can do something really bad. If it is only for one thing, the board can allow them to keep a license. So what my amendment does is that deal yiets -- deletes tos portion of outcomes so I worked this out with the patron.
[Unknown]
Questions on adoption of the floor amendment from Mr. Loupassi dealing with yadda, yadda.
Manoli Loupassi
Mr. Speaker, members of the House I was advised when I began to not put in bills related to animals and there is interesting history about why I put this bill in this year. And it goes back to last year we had a Senate bill that took the previous definition of private animal shelter and by the time it passed and signed it took the previous words of the definition and put the phrase after the and putting it before the and. Previous language shelter said had to be housed and cared for animals, yadda, yadda, and that was the purpose providing adoption. And we said to feed and how longs animals and be a not for profit because of that change we made thinking our emphasis was, we wanted to make sure adoption should be the primary objective of a private animal shelter. But subsequent to last year's action, there was a moving part that went around and long and short felt they hadded to begin a guidance document that determined purpose. We don't define it in code. Excuse me. It's what webster says it is. That is a pretty vague term. The document at it's stage was released and they're saying you have to adopt at least 50% of the animals you make in. Just you had to adopt at least half. While we might feel that is not bad public policy, the dilemma created is that they were having 0 input to this and felt shut out and well, because because of our actions there is a lot of confusion about what the meaning was. And so I was asked to carry legislation to stimulate it was for purpose of adoption and other responsibilities which had not changed and spells out what a private animal shelter can do and do it. The fascinating thing to me in this process is one group opposing this measure is the Virginia humane society. They said current law does not prohibit euthanasia, that before and after Senate bill 1381, all private shelters have the same authority as they did. But their latest missive says now, that it's undoing what we did last year, that now, it would allow a operate solely for one purpose, adoption. Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House given the confusion of the matter, that have now been on both sides describing my bill doing one thing and now, the opposite thing, and now, that we have a language before us that tries to reduce confusion about purpose, we now this bill is animal unfriendly and and animal control association and Virginia bill association and another individual organization and I hope it be the pleasure of the bod yes to engross the bill and pass it to third reading.
