Members of the House. A mount vernon resident for more than 50 years and former representative to the Virginia House of delegates passed away on December 30 at at age of 92 years old. He served a is a republican for four terms from 1982 to 1990. I remember him well as a young man. Previously he worked as an assistant director of the u.S. General accounting office for two decades before retiring in 1979. In the mount vernon community, Delegate medico volunteered as a coach here where he was very involved. He was a devout catholic good in spirit and in the heart. Those who met him could see his heart and feel the love he emma nateed. It is just the -- emnated. It is just the kind of man he was. His devotion to his faith and his community and family formed a bed rock that many grew to know and respect. He was never happier than when he could save taxpayers money. At one time saving hundreds of millions of dollars at the federal level with one gao report. He still had a passion for public service winning consecutive elections for Delegate as a fiscal conservative where none previously running under that banner had succeeded. Even we democrats admired frank's ability to mend fences and connection with people all over the mount vernon 44th district. His retirement from office did not show his efforts to seven as a an advocate and his letters were a fixture even almost until the last month of his death. When asked how he would like to be remembered, frank responded as a person who loved his country and always placed our citizens' concerns and needs first and as one who never compromised my values and principles when deciding on a course of action that would impact the people. He loved his community and commonwealth and helped make mount vernon and the commonwealth of Virginia a better place to live and raise a family. He was born in south braintree massachusetts and is survived by his daughters jane and tory that and son and four children and great grand children. I move when the House adjourn today it adjourn in the memory of former Delegate from mount vernon frank medico.
Bill Howell
The gentleman moves that the House adjourn today in honor and memory of the honorable frank medico. As many as favor that motion sa. That motion is agreed to. The gentleman from loud, Mr. Bell.
John Bell
Mr. Speaker, I rise for a point of personal privilege.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
John Bell
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, fellow delegates you heard from several of our colleagues so far this February recognizing and celebrating Black history month. I want to tell you a story that happened this past year in loud county. The ash burn color school is a one room school House where oneteacher would do her best toe educate as many as 50 children at once. The tiny building where stew dens once buried their noses in second hand books is the site of a community miracle. Volunteer efforts have gone towards restoring and researching the history of the ashburn colored school. Records found inside led to the discovery of a rich but forgotten history of Loudoun County and our commonwealth's tortured history with race. Last October, the history became even more tortured for the school. The school was vandalized with racial slurs and swastikas painted on the building with hate speech. The outright ugliness and cowardness of the offenders made many of us angry. Here is the miracle. The community came together to right the wrong. Over $100,000 was rapidly raised in only two weeks to restore the school again and hundreds of volunteers lent their time to the cleanup. Today, the historic schoolhouse stands as a testament to what we cannot forget -- lest we relive the history that has stained our state and nation. The lesson I draw from the story is despite all of the hateful rhetoric the partisan politics that permiates national and sometimes state media we are far from where we are in the 1950s. My constituents have shown me now more than ever is a time to come together and move forward side by side as proud americans. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. [applause]

[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker and ladies and gentlemen of the House. This was the bill that fixes the law as it relates to pre-sentence reports when the person pleads guilty or doesn't have a plea agreement or pleads nolo or doesn't have a plea agreement. The law requires them to have a pre-sentence report. A lot of times the defendant and commonwealth attorney don't want to have a presentence report. Waive it and have the sentencing today, the guy is pleading guilty. What this bill allows for is for the defendant and commonwealth attorney to waive the presentence report. What the Senate did is they struck unless waived by the defendant but that was in a sentence that was right before. What we had was redundant and unnecessary and they caught it and struck it. And so, they don't change it, they make it better. So I 'm asking you to accept the Senate amendment.
