Mr. Speaker, members of the House, rightfully so, we talk about education in this chamber. And I think all will agree education is the opportunity, the gateway to opportunity. All of the students in the commonwealth deserve a quality education regardless of circumstances. That is why the House of delegates always makes education a top priority in every session. The House made major investments in education over the years, led the effort to reform standards of learning and active reforms that put parents and teachers back in charge. Reestablish the policy of sending back lottery dollars, inencumbered to school divisions. As a result of the efforts and work of teachers Virginia 's children are scoring higher on precollege entrance exams. Virginia ranks third in the nation in ap achievement. Accreditation and grad rags rates are up. Scores are up. Statewide, education seems to be going relatively well. For years now, schools have been struggling. Since our education funding formulas are based on per pupil basis, the student leaves, so does the funding. Fewer students mean fewer dollars to education. Many schools have taken a major financial hit and have had to cut programs a group of leaders came up last week and met with leadership to try to figure out a way to fix this problem. Mr. Speaker, I 'm proud to stand here and announce together we've reached a solution that we think will be part of our House budget that will help. We began with what we call 10, 10, 10 formula. This initiative will take a look at last 10 years of student if there has been a 10% decline enrollment. Or more, in students, and a school district has less than 10,000 students, we'll provide a supplement, providing small school districts I 'm excited that we will restore the lottery proceeds going back to school divisions. This will be up to 40%. Last year, we restored gotry proceeds with 29%. That helps school boards and boards of supervisors. We remain committed to allowing greater flexibility for school divisions so they can make the right choices on where to best utilize this money. They can use the money for teacher pay raises and go to 100% of our vrs performing. Education equips people with knowledge that they need to be successful in life. We want to thank you, Mr. Speaker, and Mr. Cox and this will give our children a better and brighter future. Thank you.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker, one of the real he pleasures that I have enjoyed in my time here in the House was when you assigned me to Chesapeake bay commission which is the tri-state, federally recognized organization that is been working to clean up the Chesapeake bay. I have learned a valuable lesson that the bay will not be cleaned up just by government. It requires partners in private sector and those in the sector in order to galvanize people in this big body of work. In 2017, we're on target to meet our goals. Here is the challenge. We have a lot of work to do and I appreciate the leadership in galvanizing this body to the important work of cleaning up the bay. You can see many of our members border this precious resource. My view is God created it, so we need to take care of it. And I think we're doing a good job in moving in the right direction. Today, Mr. Speaker, we are honored to have very special people with us today, will baker, serving as president and ceo of the Chesapeake bay foundation since 1982 and inspired generations of citizens to become life long stewards of the bay. My good friend jim rogers served as a member of the Chesapeake bay foundation board of trustees since 2003. And rebecca labrell, previously served as Virginia 's director of the office of environmental epidemiology. Almost longer than lingmafelter. Mr. Speaker, under the steadfast leadership of will baker, the chessa peak bay foundation played a leadership role and acted as a partnership to many of us to ensure we have clean water, healthy fish population, strong farm economies and maces where our children and grandchildren can swim safely. In addition to opening the environmental center, in Virginia beach, the most resilient region in the world have advocated for upgrades in Virginia 's waft water treatment plants, technical assistance to thousands of Virginia farmers and state funding to help cities and towns to pollute runoff. The Chesapeake bay foundation continues to work closely with the general assembly and partners to implement the blueprint which is accelerated clean up efforts across the commonwealth. A foundation long had a successful center and they grow millions of baby oysters each year and place them in our water ways. The foundation also hosts opportunities for the commonwealth. It's important for youngsters to learn real science we're here to commend them with a resolution we've just passed, recently, and I would ask you to please give a warm round of thank you to a foundation foundation. >> Mr. Baker thank you for efforts and it is a remarkable transition we're seeing. We notice it in the leadership the board provides and thank you for that. Gentleman from Roanoke city Mr. Rasoul.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House I could not compare to measure up to the passion we heard from the folks who spoke about executive order issued by president trump but I can write letters occasionally. Ands I said yesterday, I have a letter that I requested input from, from as many people as possible. Some folks took me up on that. The letter is now ready. I think you will find it a steaming measure of concern. The letter doesn't mention the word un-constitutional once. And I think that is important. Because some people have differences of opinion on this the letter has not been sent my issue. I hope you can sign it, our hope e-mail. Is to get it out this afternoon to president trump so he can think about the executive order and how he wants to proceed. Well, before I finish I did have a little warning quiz for you all. I know you love the morning hour quizzes this, quiz is brought to you by the kato institute. A conservative think tank. So hopefully, data they've proceed vieded for us is true. The institute had done a study on how many americans had been killed on united states soil between 1975 and 2015 by citizens of the seven countries to which the travel ban under the executive order applies. So let's start with iraq. How many? 0. Iran? How many, 0. You're getting answers right. Good. How about yemen? 0? Libya? 0. Somalia, 0. Sudan, 0. And your final question. Syria. 0. So, the seven nations we're so concerned about, no foreign citizen killed an american on american soil since 1975. By contrast, there are a couple of them that aren't on the list. United arab emirates. 314 americans they killed. Egypt. And saudi arabia, the grand 162. Daddy of them all, because of September 11th, over 2000. So ask yourself a question, what is this about? Hopefully, come and sign a letter to express your concerns. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. A week or so ago I took a moment to talk about the issue of redistricting reform. My hope that we'd vote on it here on this floor. I expressed what I think is a wide spread view that this House needs to take a stand on this issue. Yesterday, Mr. Speaker, every resolution addressing the issue of redistricting was killed in an undifferentiated block of resolutions by four members of this 100 member body. When a request was made to receiver the bills that was granted as a courtesy to any member of the body, subcommittee gave that member the back of its hand. This happens in Washington all the time but doesn't happen here. Mr. Speaker, the call for redistricting reform in Virginia is getting louder every day. This body doesn't seem to be listening. The gerrymandering. And the voters have finally noticed. Gentleman from Augusta has an elegantly simple proposal and the gentleman from Fairfax has a proposal in hj28. For some reason, the subcommittee determined none of these should see the light of day. Mr. Speaker, by the end of the session, all of us will have cast hundreds of thousands of votes. It will affect our politics and government for a decade. It's almost as disrespectful to our constituents as is gerrymannedering process itself. This vote or lack of a vote it asks everyone of the members of the body why didn't you vote on the redistricting reform issue. If you had, how would you have voted. They sent us hire to vote Mr. Speaker. We failed citizens of the commonwealth by not doing so on redistricting reform. Let's vote. Thank you.

Gentleman from Spotsylvania, Mr. Cole.
Mark Cole
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I feel compelled to respond to a baseless accusation by a member of this body against a subcommittee I attended. In fact, the subcommittee motion allowed several motions to be made and when legislation was reported out, a motion was a megs was made to table a request that had been made. There was no request to receiver or did he vote on ones individually. If there had been, we would have done that. I have asked the other side to provide. They say they have tape of the meeting. I asked to see that tape to see if a motion was missed. If this was one, I 'd call a special meeting of that subcommittee to correct the wrong. The fact is that there are several cases pending regarding redistricting and it is normally the policy of the body to not act on legislation that might be affected by an ongoing pending Suit and again, redistricting will hot happen several years so there is time tow await the court rulings and get additional information before we need to really act on any of these bills. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Thank you.

[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. What this bill does is removes requirement that dmv suspend a license of a person if the court permitted such a person's right to drive and this bill brought to me by some attorneys in my district representing one of my constituents living on his own, independent, driving had a license for 17 years and holding down a job but he had a susceptibility to financial scams. His parents were aging and wanted a guardian assigned to him. With did agreement he was adjudicated in ka pass tated. He can't drive to the grocery store and so what the bill does is gives the judge that ability to determine with medical evidence that he can keep his driver's license. And so this is applied to many people across the state found themselves in the same predicament because there are many differing levels and this isn't for the judge to decide. I move the bill engrossed and passed to third reading.

Bill Howell
Gentleman from from culpepper Mr. Freitas.
Nick Freitas
On behalf of my good buddy I want to thank the gentleman. He did come by, providing a great deal of light reading for me and with respect to questions on the bill. I want to point something out. It seemed we're moving down this path with all of a sudden gender was a social construct. If you tried to define gender along biological lines you were a narrow minded bigot. What kind of a person would do that? There was a letter from the department of education that stated gender is what you self identified as. If is it fair to say can someone say payment there is an economic set aside? I'm a woman now. I want to take advantage of this set aside. Or I 'm a minority now. That is what happens when playing games with the english language. Sooner or later it comes back to bite us. It turns out the federal government has a way to identify whether or not you fall in a certain gender cat fwoery. It didn't require people with guns and badges checking their gender. They accepted thing like birth certificates and pass ports. So I think it's important. I'm in the a big fan of cut outs but at the end of the day p someone has gone through a mountain of paper work, they shouldn't have to go through it at state level as well. So I appreciate efforts to tri to circumvent the governor's issue on this and I think the beg take away from this, and I looked forward to watching that tomorrow, as the votes go up, that these are not just social constructs. They're actual meanings and it's not a bad thick thing. I thank the gentleman. Those in favor say aye. Opposed, no. Bill engrossed and passed to third reading.

[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, members of the House you know there are no bars in Virginia. You have to have a full service restaurant if you only serve beer and wine, you have to have a full service restaurant and sell $2,000 worth of food. If you want to have alcohol you want a minimum sale and so over the years we have made exceptions to this rule for places that rules are tough to so no one goes to see a band and meet. Eat a steak at the same place. So we made exceptions, it got the to the point where we're making all of these exceptions and I wanted to have a set of rules that everybody can follow. This bill says you can be exempted but you have to have a full service restaurant and sell $6,000 of food. We say to make sure they don't have cheaters. The way a cheater would do it would be hire my brother to play jazz flute and say I 'm a performing arts facility and don't have to follow rules. We say is that 75% of your tickets have to be sold in advance and has to be at true market value. I hope it be the pleasure of the House to engross the bill and passed to third reading.

Bill Howell
Gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Sickles.
Mark Sickles
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I would be okay if you allowed the gentleman to go ahead and speak but I was just going to make small points about how we've handled this these many years and the very unlikely case that somebody who is here illegally would go and register in a election where a penalty could be up to 10 years in jail. This is what it says. Any time you're registered to vote there is a statement that any preprinted statement form shall include a statement of unlawful conduct in the penalty provided by the section. Committing a felony to vote in an election is something that no noncitizen in their right mind would do. It's not happened. I know people on the other side of the aisle are upset that democrats keep winning elections but these bills are not going to help. I mean they're just going to inspire more people to register to vote. So I would urge the body to oppose the bill. Thank you very much.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Sullivan.
Rip Sullivan
Turks Mr. Speaker. Speaking to the bill.
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor.
Rip Sullivan
I was going to ask whether the committee had heard people who are u.S. Citizens don't have copies of birth certificates or a passport? There are a lot of people we know to be u.S. Citizen who's don't have a copy of their birth certificate or a u.S. Passport. Those are the only two documents that this legislation allows a potential election. There is data out there that finds almost 6% of citizens, 5.7% do not have a copy of their birth certificate or passport. It's expensive to get, b they May not do traveling. And people don't have copies of their birth certificates. My father is 88 years old. I don't think he has one any longer. What we do know when passing this legislation is that we had been saying to a portion of virginians and using national sat taftic -- statistic, that is 400,000 virginians. We'll be saying to those citizens of the united states that you can't vote for any member of the House of delegates. You can't vote for your local board of supervisors or the governor of the commonwealth. We'll be creating a class of second class citizens. And this is not speculation. We know it to be true. 456,000 virginians will not be allowed to vote in state elections. I urge we not engross this bill and that you oppose this bill, tomorrow.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Prince William Mr. Marshall.
Bob Marshall
Addressing the measure.
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor.
Bob Marshall
Mr. Speaker, I first would note that the gentleman's math uses the wrong data base. He's using the population of Virginia which is probably 8.3 million, instead of the population which is a voter age, smaller than that. So the amount would not be whatever he said, 400 some thousand. For years, I used to order new voter lists. And I would say look here is my phone number. Here is my address. One of these times I ran across an individual who happened to be chairman of the republican party in Prince William County. I said it's time you're registering since you've been our chairman for three years. He got the letter he called and said what are you doing? I said, well, what are you doing? I said why are you registering to vote? He said I didn't do that. I said well what did you do on such and such date? He thought and said oh. I was at the dmv. He registered to vote not knowing he'd been registered and dmv didn't catch it because they sent him a new registration card. In certain of my precincts I go there, taking voter rolls I get for the state board of elections and through some of these conversations I have half spanish, half english, identifying individuals who tell me they're not citizens but they're on the voter data base. How do they get there? If the department of motor vehicles. I received a letter from a gentleman in Spotsylvania County, when identified himself as a legal resident and said I got this voter registration. What do I do? I went over to the dmv, in December, and I asked the manager May I watch the process of somebody going through the, punching buttons here? The gentleman said yes. Okay to do it. I went over and watched the screens. Says are you a u.S. Citizen and do you want to vote? He said I 'm not a u.S. Citizen, I 'm a legal resident so I can't vote. Next screen. Next screen says are you sure you don't want to register to vote? He turned to me and said why am I getting this question? I told them I 'm not a citizen. That is why I put in a study to look at the registration process that the dmv but they were no studies were done. Killed in one day. I was going to put in the bill like the gentleman here. If we can only do it for states, I think we should do it. I think that decision is wrong, and it came out of arizona and being relitigated because the states control this so we need to be sure. And again, let me mention this about three years ago I surveyed clerks across Virginia and asked hem the question. These are clerks of circuit courts. I said how many people were rejected for jury duty because they were not citizens? Norfolk had 1005 over three years, these names taken from voter rolls. Loudoun was the worst. They took the names from voter roles and dmv driver's licenses. Over three years, 9500 were rejected because they were not citizens and data base was voter data base at the dmv. Since it's the largest mechanism for registering people, and I think people are on there accidentally, and in our own county, Prince William, former chairman of the board of elections took it upon himself to match the names of absentee ballots, signature was the signatures submitted. Out of 166, 6.7 or 6 pl 8% had no way to match yet they were allowed to vote. I wish we can go further and I urge support for the gentleman's measure.
