Transcript

What follows is a transcript of this day’s session that was created as closed-captioning text, written in real time during the session. We have made an effort to automatically clean up the text, but it is far from perfect.

[Unknown]
The House is now in session. All persons not entitled to privileges on the floor please retire to the gallery.
Bill Howell
Members will rise and be led in prayer by the very Reverend nicholas g baccalus in Richmond and remain standing for the pledge of allegiance to the flag of the united states of america led by the gentleman from Colonial Heights, Mr. Cox.
Kirk Cox
Please excuse my gravelly voice this morning. Let us bow our heads in prayer, all mighty and merciful lord, we bow our heads for abundant blessings bestowed upon us for another beautiful Virginia day, bounties of the land, stability of our society, and for our blessing of being citizens of our commonwealth. We thank you for the privilege of being elected leaders serving this esteemed body allowing us to serve our fellow citizens. We thank you for the gift of freedom and ideals to which we strive for human dignity and justice for all. We seek your guidance in maintaining and working towards these goals. Lead us in our deliberations, allow us to reconcile differences and bring to resolution any difficult issues we face. Those who support the functioning of the House, families and members of the communities we represent. [ reciting the pledge of allegiance ]. It's important to me because I represent three of the top five counties with the highest fatal overdoses over the last 10 years. Mr. Speaker, I can continue the facts and figures and today, I want to tell this body I began with the story of lucy her first impression of delivery was one of starvation. Not the type of hunger when skipping a meal, she had the type of starvation for a drug that her mother had used throughout her pregnancy. Lucy spent four months being held by nurses, and nicu volunteers consulsing, seizing and being inconsolable until the drugs worked their way out of their system. When lucy left the hospital she was placed in a loving foster home because her parents had chosen their drug addiction over their child. House bill 21, 62 deals with average cost of neo natal he was offered $18,000 per month to work one day per week. This offer entailed no council requirements, nothing other than a dea number, a one-hour online course and a promise if you saw more than suggested 100 patients, administrators would handle the risk. Lucrative enticements would be tempting. House bill 2163 addresses dangers when used in medication. Because my physician's friend's mother had been an addict he declined the job. Mr. Speaker, we know medications, trading one for another is unacceptable. We have an addiction crisis that is a result of years of overprescribing. We can no longer just point the finger of the addict. We have to turn that finger back on us. We can't rest our way out of this crisis anymore. The final story, and I want everyone to listen to this story. The story of josh. Josh is a 31-year-old air force veteran, raised by well respected veteran parents in northern Virginia suburbia. When he was 24 he suffered a neck injury. In the er he left with a 90 day opoid prescription. By the time he left and reached bottom of the steel bottle, josh was an an addiction. In conjunction with Delegate Hugo 's efforts, House bills 2167 districts the board of medicine to develop regulations including dosage, limitations, treatment plans and pmd utilizations. Mr. Speaker, this problem has a victim in this very body and I 'm grateful that Delegate john Bell allowed me to share his story in hopes of helping others take away the stigma of addiction. I'm confident the measures today are important steps that will help prevent more lives from being lost from the epidemic. I ask for your support. Thank you.

It's been a rough weekend. I found my wife and kids have the same stomach bug so I spent the weekend dealing with that. And then, we had, unfortunately, this distraction of an executive order including a religious test which hurt people close to me. That year this body passed House resolution 75. And House resolution 75 we commended religious liberty, celebrating thomas jefferson's statute for religious freedom. Our nation remains open to individuals of all faiths who embrace our laws and seek a better life. The statute for religious freedzom was built upon president James Madison 's memorial against religious assessments. See, Madison was a fighter. And he fought hard for religious minorities of his time, especially the baptists. The majority religion in Virginia back then was anglican in this book, they were crying for food through the cold bars of their jail, speaking of the baptists imprisoned. Their captors threw them dry crusts of rye bread to eat. One tormentor stood on a stool christianity. And urinated through the bars of the cell. This body, the House of delegates, jefferson's House, May be unlike any other body in the world has a rich history in our dna. Madison agreed with jefferson that a republic without religious freedom was impossible. This is a core virginian value. Liberty is something I hold near. Many of you know I 've taken a few hits myself when my votes haven't aligned with party lines. For me, that is okay. I feel our liberties are infringed upon, what good is an american value if we're not ready to sacrifice for it. That whether it's a new american chasing a dream or a child in Bristol making it from one meal to another. We must determine what we want our sides should not just defend our core when we rally around core Virginia values we're honoring the legacy of our founding fathers. I'm proud to be able to sit here protecting jefferson's legacy in our House, Mr. Speaker. Thank you very much.

Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, Friday morning I spoke in recognition of holocaust remembrance day. This May be the greatest evil humanity faced in scale and scope in the 20th century, I didn't think I 'd be speaking on it again so soon. The holocaust happened 70 some odd years ago. After the holocaust, people said never again. Sometimes, I think the lessons need to be remembered. Men and women were thrown into crowded cattle cars and taken to gas chambers. Murdered not because of opposition to the nazi regime, but for simply existing. They can convert to christianity and they'd still be murdered. I think it's important for the body and most do know what is going on in syria right now. Men and women and children are being murdered for simply existing. The regime is yugsing something called barrel bombs with people like dictator of russia and vladimir putin. These bombs are full of shrapnel and explosives. The goal is to flatten villages and neighborhoods. These bombs are massive. They take an entire neighborhood or village, teeming with life, and immediately turn it into a graveyard. We need to understand that when the president of the united states permly bans refugees from syria, people who have papers in order and vetted two years, trying to have life. I'm reminded of the st. Louis circling around the united states until the people on that ship were sent back to europe. Hundreds died at the gas chamber. I know most of you are horrified by this decision. I think you need to speak out. The office of legal council, hundreds of members of the foreign service have written a letter in dissent. I want to remind you that etc. Not just democrats speaking out. One powerful statement is from someone who used to be the governor of indiana, governor mike pence who tweeted in December, 2015 calls to ban muslims from entering the u.S. Are offensive, and un-constitutional. The speaker of the House says this is not who we are as a party or country. He said calls to ban muslims violates the first amendment of the constitution, protected freedom of religion and 14th amendment of the constitution, paul ryan said it's a fundamental constitutional priniple of the country. What is proposed is not what this party stands for and importantly not what the country stands for. And we go on to mention many loyal muslims serving in our armed forces. I would have to vote former president george w. Bush whose six days after September 11th had dignity to stand up and say, the face of terror is not the true face of islam. This is not what islam is about. Islam is Peace. He talked about millions who make a incredible valuable contribution to the country. I've got to be frank. I am a jew. I know that if my family had not scraped together meager savings, they would all have been murdered. America has been a refuge for people around the globe. I know a few of you are descendants of native americans. This is who we are as a country and virginians. I know most of you oppose this. I ask you to speak out now, more than ever. Now our vice president and speaker of the House are being quiet, we need to speak and say never again. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. >>> Mr. Speaker, I rise for an introduction.

The gentlewoman May proceed.

Ladies and gentlemen of the House, as a former pta mom, I wanted to introduce today, the ron hennedorson of the northern Virginia district pta here in honor of Virginia pta advocacy day.

They're proud union members who teach our children, build our ships, fly our planes, build, maintain our infrastructure and whoer here today to lobby for rights and interests of Virginia workers.

The stated mission is to provide all american was a place to testify to the beauty of life. Regardless of where you stand on abortion issue, I hope that everyone takes note of those who participate in the March. The March is a gathering of individuals journeying to the seat of government to urge their elected representatives to take action to protect innocent life. It's also an example of protests at its best. The March is peaceful, free of profanity and often punctuated with prayer. That is how demonstrations are supposed to be conducted with respect for our system and solemn constitutional right of all americans to seek redress. The participants in the March represent the diversity of our nation. People journey from every state and those who participated know every age group and young people are amply present. The headline was the presence of the highest ranking government official to ever address the March in person. Vice president, mike pence. The vice president told the March life is winning again. Never were those words more welcome or more true. It isn't just a change in Washington with pro-life majorities in congress and a pro-life administration. It is polling evidence that more americans consider themselves to be pro-life more than ever before. It's scientific evidence giving us a greater understanding of how early life begins and medical advances that make survivability and viability possible earlier than ever before. As we consider what transpired since the roe decision, I find it heartening many americans demonstrate commitment, dedication and ser sear yens to par participate in the March. It is my hope and the prayer of millions that the March will have fulfilled it's mission some day soon. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Mr. Speaker, I 'm holding a picture my wife took on Saturday. I show it to you for its representation of transportation as it now stands in northern Virginia. There is what is called a green arrow lane this, is not anything that batman or super man. It has to do with nontolled lane going on both sides of the road from haymarket to 495. This is going away. Why is this going away? This body last year in a unusual move included a provision of a stand alone bill in the budget. It aumorrized tolling of interstates around Virginia. Aggressive mannestation of this is on I -66. This tolled nonfee lane is disappearing. Where is it going? One given to a company called sentera, which is going to build an additional toll lane on I -66 in both directions so we give one that taxpayers paid for. They're going to build one. This is called choice. How it reduces congestion and then, charging a rate of tolls for hov 2 hor 1 of $75 a day is beyond me. Do you remember signs we held up? Everybody pretended they're against the tolls? When you add what is going on, round trip to Washington, d.C. Is going to be $92 a day. Now, are we building this road just for the trump administration? I don't think so. I don't know who it's going to be built for, but not for the average citizen where I live. Mr. Speaker, this is calculated on what is charged on 95 now. It exceeds that at times now has a survey been done to will they pay this rate? And it can go up. Hay market asked if there is a cap that can be charged and the abs answer is no, there is not. Stated preference survey indicates 50% of those who answer the survey said they'd use the tolls if the cost was not greater than $two for 15 miles. When the question was pushed further, someone of the studies published that anyone was asked how many would use the polls if the cost was $1.50 or $37.5 for 25 miles from hay market to 495? Mr. Speaker, I 've asked the secretary of transportation today to give me under lying ayupgss. They claim it's going to be transportation nirvana. So many people are going to leave I -66. There is no survey on this results were not published. When I asked and my colleagues is that transportation committee had a meeting and announced these tolls nobody would be in favor of it. In fact, 98% opposed tolls. I went to most of the meetings. So what you're doing, you're taking a non-tolled lane and giving it to a spanish company, reducing from 4-3 amount of free lanes everybody is going to have. These arrow lanes go in both directions on 66. When my wife and I met to meet with constituents in Fairfax, the lanes were operative both east and

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, I am not sure what problem we're trying to fix with this bill. We might create a consequence that might not be good for our institutions of higher education. Let's assume there is a person who spent their entire life in Virginia ? They graduate from high school, go to university of Virginia. They do their graduate work at they stay in Virginia another ten years and they make their home in Virginia. They have had a great love and affection for their university, whatever it is. They get appointed to the members of the university, then, they take a job in Washington, d.C., with the federal government or some other agency and they move to Washington, d.C. And then take another person. That person with no ties to Virginia in their youth. Didn't go to Virginia colleges or high schools. Lived in new York their entire life, but they got to be friends with a gubernatorial candidate and they gave a lot of money to that candidate. And they applied to be on the board of one of our universities and got selected. Then, all of a sudden they'd become rector. Now, what scenario do we want to -- maybe that person moved back to Virginia. Do we want the person who gave a lot of money to the governor? Who just got on the board? Or do we want a scenario that allows rectors to be drawn. We might live out of state. I think this bill creates a problem in not allowing those folks to be able to serve it and creates talent and trying to make our universities better, I hope you'll vote against the bill.
[Unknown]
Mr. Landes.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Speaking to the bill.
[Unknown]
Ladies and gentlemen of the House, I try not to deal with hypothetical situations and the gentleman brought some points related to hypothetical situations that May or May not occur. We tried to grand father those current serving so we're not catching board members who May be sifshing as vice rector or rector at this point. This is about accountability. I remind our members that etch institution of higher learning is an authorize institution. They were not created by just out of thin air. They became a state supported institution. I talk about accountability, this will bring small measurability to the realization they're a body responsible to the commonwealth of Virginia not just the individual institution. And are supported or nominated by the governor, confirmed by us that served out of state. That is fine. What this does is add additional accountability. You can make sure two leading officers of each institution are Virginia residents. Why is that accountable? That provides accountability. They're hearing from citizens across the state. I don't think this is too much to ask. That board members had that accountability. So Mr. Speaker, I ask members to support this modest measure to bring a little bit of accountability between institutions of higher learning and their allegiance to the commonwealth of Virginia not just this or that university or college.

Gentleman from Fairfax, miss Watts .
Vivian Watts
Thank you, Mr. Speaker, speaking to the bill.
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor.
Vivian Watts
I would like to add context on this. In our debate on second read the question was raised how many members of the boards are in state, out of state. It was sort of passed off as well, half and half and there abouts. I looked at a good number of the boards and I was confident in being able to say by our legislation that about one quarter to a third can be out of state. The rest, the super majority of the boards must be in state residents. This is particularly true of william and mary, that can have only three out of state residents out of 12. Of uva, can only have five out of 17, when I looked at outliers I 'm thinking about the history and why there May not have been this limit on out of state members of the board. Norfolk state, conceivably, 12 of 13 could be out of state. Only one is required to be in state and with some degree of fondness as I have gone to know vmi pride when you look at vmi, four must be, and mour can be from out of state. In other words it is the core that is the first loyalty in this institution. When looking at that, this is the gate keeper, we want to be able to have the boards choose leadership as to individuals who can most effectively fill the role in that institution's history and challenges.

[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, it was very clear what a fallacy is when the gentleman spoke. He said they spent their money. That is a problem. I spent five years on city council. It was never my money. It's taxpayers' money. We have a fiduciary responsibility to spend that money wisely, but keeping in mind we have to do it in a manner that saves to get as much as possible. If he wants to spend coffee in a ritzy shop, he can do it but with taxpayer money, I do understand that the governor did vote this twice. Since understanding he's no longer looking for a position in the administration. I'm thinking he might be able to do the right thing this time. I hope the body will continue to pass this up at legislation.

House bill 1763, a bill to authorize the issuest of highway safety.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Loudoun, Mr. Grease on.
[Unknown]
Ladies and gentlemen of the House, this bill came to me from the high school kids in the community. I know there is uncontested but there was a tragedy in my community resentally in Loudoun County. A young mother was walking home from dropping off her first grader at elementary school and returning home with her 5-month-old in a baby carriage going from the school back to her home. She was crossing legally into a crosswalk, and a vehicle that was not necessarily paying attention accidentally struck the mother and the carriage, killing the 5-month-old baby instantly. The story on the scene allegedly, and I want to be careful here, allegedly the driver was distracted by the phone he was holding in his hand as he pulled into the intersection and allegedly struck the mother and the baby. The baby died instantly. The mother taken to the hospital. The first grader was at her school, unknown. The father of the young family at work, also, unknown. So we're talking about this in a local high school the other day. 3, 4 weeks ago before the session. And the high schoolers brought something to my attention I hadn't thought about before. They said a couple things that are really important. One, we can certainly try to address distracted driving by raising penalties but you know what? High schoolers don't think about class four or class five misdemeanors or felonies. They don't really think about $250 or $500 in fines. The second thing they shared is something bad already happened. If you're going to pass a law that will prevent people from doing this or making it more obvious and painful when this accident happens you've missed the opportunity. And high schoolers said why don't we create a campaign around awareness. They had this idea of creating a license plate and I loved their suggestions. The meeting they said things like if you pulled up behind a car that had a license plate that said put your phone down, dummy, stop texting, stupid, pay attention, idiot, these are the high school kids talking about what they think would be impactful. So Delegate Anderson and Delegate villa new year's eva talked to dmv. They said we have a procedure, we can create a competition where high school kids can participate in designing the logo, and the art work associated with a license plate that might be more impactful than a law. And getting these kids involved on the front end of creating these slogans and plates and art work would create a buzz within the high schools around the commonwealth to get them to be more aware of how dangerous distracted driving is. So this bill allows us to do that. It authorizes us to create a license plate to talk about driver safety, comma, to include distracted driving. I think it's a great idea. I hope hundreds of these plates are around the commonwealth and I appreciate your indulgence in letting me tell you that story. Sometimes, these bill goes through quickly of I didn't give the speech on a Friday. Because it's a speech I wanted to give and make an impact in respect of the high school kids who thought long, and hard about how to make a difference. Mr. Speaker, I ask that we engross the bill and move it to third reading. Thank you.
