Kirk Cox
May we bow our heads for prayer. Father God, I come before you this morning first thanking you for watching over us as we slept unaware of what was going on around us. But early this morning you touched us and awakened us to see this new day that you have made and have allowed us to be a part of it. Now, dear lord, I pray for the men and women who have been elected to carry out the business of the commonwealth of Virginia. That you prepare them for the day and for the business before them. I pray that you endow them with wisdom so that they will make right decisions on behalf of the people they represent. Guide and lead them as only you can. God, I lift them up before you and I ask that even on matters in which they disagree that you will help them find common ground to come and find a consensus that these things might be carried out with no bitterness. Bless them, o God, keep their minds not on personal or political posturing but on the good of all of the people of the commonwealth of Virginia. Father God, while they are here taking care of the business of Virginia, be with their families and keep them from seen and unseen danger as our legislators render their hearts and minds to the business matters that are before them today. And finally, o, lord, at the end of this session, after they have given the best of their abilities to make things right, and to make right decisions, give them Peace at the end of the day to have peaceful rest, knowing that they gave their best as you have given them your best. Jesus' name we pray, amen.
[Unknown]
Amen.
Kirk Cox

Today, 3:00 is the deadline to submit requests to the front desk to be removed as a copatron from any legislation.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Prince William, Mr. Anderson.
Rich Anderson
Mr. Speaker I rise for a point of personal privilege and a motion.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
Rich Anderson
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. For those of us in Prince William County and I speak fully for the Prince William County delegation in this old and venerable body as well as the commonwealth of Virginia and those who have served in this chamber with her, I have the sad duty to report that yesterday afternoon former Delegate and current Prince William County clerk of circuit court michelle mcquig passed away yesterday after noon after a long and storied life of public service. I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of our delegation in Prince William County, Mr. Speaker and acknowledge the life long service exemplified by michelle's stepping forward in this commonwealth and giving p herself and her family in service to others. This is an especially personal loss for all of us in Prince William County. But it is also a personal loss for my family. Simply because we had established such a close and enduring relationship with michelle and with her husband clancy. They both were devoted to public service. Michelle began her public service as the district supervisor on the prince county board of county supervisors, the seat that my wife ruth Anderson now occupies. Later she moved to Richmond and occupied the 51 House seat, Mr. Speaker that I 'm now privileged to sit in. For my family, michelle has a special meaning and she will never be forgotten. In all things, michelle had a great heart for public service like all of you in this chamber. You have stepped forward, you have presented yourself for self-less acts of service to our communities and to our commonwealth and michelle exemplified that. In prince Williams, she was known during her campaigns for the board of supervisors, House of delegates and for the sir cit court for her trademark sun hat. She wore a large hat. I had people in my district as I make my way door to door ask pee meif I was going to get a sun ht to wear. Today, Mr. Speaker, this is a bittersweet moment. Bitter in the sense that michelle is gone. She is no longer with us. She has fought the good fight. She has served this commonwealth and country. And she has gone on to her reward. And it is also sweet because for so many years Prince William County and the great commonwealth of Virginia had her in our midst. And so, Mr. Speaker, on behalf of the Prince William delegation to the Virginia House of delegates I move when the House adjourns today that we do adjourn in the honor and the memory of michelle mcqueeg.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Prince William Mr. Anderson moves when the House adjourn today it adjourn in honor and memory of former Delegate michele as many as favor that motion Mr. Mcqueeg. That motion is agreed to. The gentleman from Lynchburg, Mr. Garrett.
Rich Anderson
Thank you Mr. Speaker. I rise for an introduction, sir.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
Rich Anderson
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Ms and ladies and gentlemen of the House I do not come here this morning to try to bore you I tale so compelled to make sure that all of my colleagues know the twists and turns of House bill 1573. House bill 1573 was offered for consideration on January 26. The bill took the course of all other bills that travel through the process that is in place in this chamber. House bill 1573 I believe could easily have been called a jobs bill. The reason for that statement, Mr. Speaker, I will touch on a bit further in the address. H.B. 1573 was develople for the working watermen of Virginia. A group of men and women who traverse the waterways of Virginia every day of their lives. The conditions that they work in are some of the harshest conditions that anyone could face in their jobs. Mr. Speaker, no matter what the weather companies are, it is imperative for the Virginia watermen to work through the cold of winter and to work through the heat of summer. They have families and this he have needs just as any other family does and they must work every day to provide for their family. Mr. Speaker, I would like to thank everyone in this chamber for supporting House bill 1573. You heard the watermen's cries and you realize the need for House bill 1573. Not only do I thank you, but the watermen of Virginia thank you. Mr. Speaker after crossover I wait the for the Senate to schedule the hearing of these three bills and among those bills was h.B. 173. I did what each of you do and have done, presented my bills to the subcommittee. Mr. Speaker, House bill 1572, House bill 1574 were heard and passed out of the committee. Thankfully, after some long discussion, House bill 1573 passed out as well. Mr. Speaker, on Wednesday the 15th of February after session I was visited by the commissioner of the Virginia marine resources commission. We spoke for awhile and suddenly we heard we were in some sort of negotiations regarding the bill that had been talked about. The commissioner suggestions regarding h.B. 1873 in my opinion would have stripped the bill of its intended purpose. I asked the commissioner to write down exactly how he wanted the bill to read. He did and I gave it a very quick review. Unfortunately, the commissioner's opinion and my view did not help to build on the watermen but actually gutted the bill of its intended purpose. And that purpose, Mr. Mr. Speaker, is to make it just a little more difficult to revoke of license of any waterman on their first offense. I was taken aback, Mr. Speaker, just before the commissioner left my office when the real purpose of our meeting was expressed and also exposed. The commissioner told me that he had been asked by the governor to persuade me that the governor's way recording h.B. 1573 was the only way. I asked the commissioner if he had spoken with anyone on the committee that was going to hear the bills and he, indeed, had spoken with several of those folks. Mr. Speaker I am appalled at the actions of the governor and appalled at the actions of the commissioner that took place yesterday. It was a cheap, cheap shot. Mr.Swhen I was elected to the first term in the House my mission was to do everything I could to help the constituents I served. Not once have I found the need to try to hijack any one's bill by going we behind someone's back without at least having the common decency to speak with them first. Ms Mr. Speaker eileened a great deal this week as it relates to integrity. The actions of the governor and the commissioner will not deter me from the course that I am on. Mr. Speaker what happened to me Wednesday of this week should never happen to anyone trying to support their constituents. The junior watermen are always going to have a voice in state government as long as I sit in this seat. Mr. Speaker I will not yield to the commissioner. I will not yield to the governor. Both trying to work behind my back to accomplish what they want and not what my con at this constituents want. Mr. Speaker, h.B. 1573 if it was not being considered for a veto I 'm quite sure it is now. So Mr. Speaker and members of the House let me thank you so much for allowing me this opportunity this morning. Thank you. [applause]
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Alexandria, Mr. Levine. Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I rise for point of personal privilege.

I'm here to talk about Black history month and about the remarkable life of harriet jacobs. Many May know a little bit about her because she serves as the basis for the character Charlotte jenkins on the show "mercy street." harriet jenkins was born into slavery in edenton, north carolina. She endured terrible sexual abuse by her master and did something extraordinary. She not only escaped slavery but she managed to hide out in an attic for seven years, obviously risking her life in doing so, before fleeing to philadelphia in 1842. Then in 1860 she did something even more extraordinary. She wrote incidents in the life of a slave girl. It is very rare to have auto biographies from former slaves back before the civil war. It is extremely rare to have one written by a woman. That is probably what she is most famous for. But that is not the part that I 'm here to commend her for, to commend her memory. After the civil war became, Alexandria .
[Unknown]
Virginia became a place for escaped slaves. It was filled with african americans coming from all over south and my city was pretty crowded. It was under union occupation and could have been reoccupied at any time. Harriet jacobs left her safety in philadelphia and came back down south in Alexandria, Virginia to provide food andmedicine and shelter for the slaves there and then she founded a school in Alexandria to educate the newly freed slaves. When the war was over she went further south down to georgia to engage in further relief. Ladies and gentlemen of the House, I hope we all remember the life of harriet jacobs an extraordinary remarkable woman who risked her life to save the life of others. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.

[Unknown]
I believe that every member of the House respects and appreciates the service of the men and women in the capitol police and the security that they provide. Theirs is a challenging job which they perform with incredible professionalism. Today, Mr. Speaker, I would like to recognize the recent accomplishments of two of our capitol police officers with us in the gallery. Officers buddy dowdy and shawn chalk land. I think it is important for the members to get to know the men and women of the capitol police force and what they do. They have a tough job so I think it is important that we get to know these men and women a little bit better. Of course, everybody recognizes officer dowdy from his many years of service at post number one. And then officer choclan is also easily recognizable because of his partner who is constantly patrolling the grounds and the buildings, his k-9 partner gunner. But, Mr. Speaker, there is so many more. In the interest of full disclosure I 'm proud of the fact that officer dowdy and officer choclan I kind of consider them to be my guys okay. Let me explain a little bit. Officer dowdy and I grew up in the same neighborhood and we were both proud hermitage panthers. And when and where we grew up, that meant something. I was one of the older guys in the neighborhood and he protected all of the squirts like dowdy. [laughter]
Buddy Fowler
Now, Mr. Speaker, officer you dowdy protects me and I 'm very thankful for that. Officer dowdy and his wife cheryl live in Henrico with their son wilson. Officer choclan is a Hanover guynd' and his wife and two sons jordan and brendon live in Hanover County. As a side note, shawn and karen's oldest son jordan is a senior at Hanover high school. He just received his appointment and will be attending the united states military academy this fall at westpoint. [applause]
[Unknown]
But, Mr. Speaker the choclans like me are dog lovers and shawn also shares my passion for fishing. Mr. Speaker I 'm still waiting for that invitation to shawn's double secret bass pond but I 'm confident that will happen soon. Finally, recently, officer buddy dowdy, a 29 year veteran of the capitol police force and officer choclan, advanced through the department's career development program and earned the title of master police officer. It is my understanding they are the first capitol police officers to have earned this distinction. To, Mr. Speaker and ladies and gentlemen of the House, please join me in recognizing the outstanding services and accomplishments of master police officers buddy dowdy and shawn choclan. [applause]
[Unknown]
We appreciate so much all that you all 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year for us. I think that everybody realizes that our capitol police force is the oldest police force in the country. And its 400th anniversary is coming up soon. Buddy wasn't there then. He was the oldest guy, but he -- we do thank you for coming and we thank all of your colleagues and appreciate so much what you do. [applause]

Bill Howell

[Unknown]
I will probably mess this up and maybe get emotional. Earlier delicate Anderson talked about a former colleague. I think too many times in the building and in the chamber in this time of session we get so caught up in what we think ought to happen because we made a promise or we did this or we did that. All of us remember the pressures of work, family, et cetera. In 1998 I was privileged to come in with a group of 10 members. Two of which still serve with me on the corners there, delegates Ware and Byron. We were reflective of Virginia. There were 10 of us. There were four women, two african americans and then six people -- six caucasian males. Excuse me, there were two we were the class of 1998 and females. Over time we would not agree on issues of policy but we would always think of the first time that we raised our hand together take the oath of office here in this chamber. We have now lost two of the members of the class of 1998. Former congress woman Davis and now Delegate mcqueeg. I remember michelle. I could not keep up with her. No woman could walk faster than she could in high heels. Coming from the g.A.B. To here you would be left in dust. She was never bashful but always had an ever present smile. And she worked tirelessly on the issues that mattered to her up here but never got upset or disagreeable with you. She would disagree without being disagreeable. She was a lesson to all of us in the chamber while we might get upset our bills get killed or don't wet the way we would like, we all are trying to do the best we can to represent our constituents and those that send us here to do the job. I would ask as we go home this weekend think about the privilege it is to serve, the honor we have been given and the responsibility that we have as members in this chamber. Most importantly, don't forget each other. We had people come up this session who don't even know former members. One day when you come up here, rocky, like I have been, you will be celebrating someone's retirement or mourning someone's loss. Keep that in mind as we legislate together and serve together and do the people's business. Thank you very much. [applause]

You might say that the only thing that remains are some of the ashes of the first bill, but somebody has to be a comedian today. The bill as if was introduced codifihood some of rememberments. It would have been a state wide application for all of the sites that are coal ash locations and now only covers those airs in the Chesapeake bay which are four locations that used to be run by dominion and eliminated a couple of other study requirements as part of the compromise process. And the most important part even though I have a gentleman from Caroline who drafted a compromise. The one area we had strong disagreement is whether or not deq should be allowed to continue on with the permitting process to allow for the changes on the locations or give a morer to yum. The version today does not have a moratorium. With that, I would ask that you pass the bill.

[Unknown]
The gentleman from Powhatan, Mr. War. >> I had a call wondering why the book was flying off the shelves. I think I discovered the reason. Senate bill 866 is an amendment to a section of the code I wish didn't exist. I said that a couple of types on the floor. Having said that, Senator stewart is making a very incremental improvement by making it slightly less onerous. What it says are these things. Directs the department of game around fisheries to create a database for any person who has at any time passed an approved safety course. Allows a motor boat operator to add their name to document that they have passed a boating safety course. It requires a law enforcement officer to search that database for the identity if a motor boat operator if he states he has complied with requirements for boating safety education course which can be takennen online and that is the challenge in terms of getting that little document piece of paper. With that, that database will make clear that they have done so. It relieves the motorboat operator from having to carry the boating safety course certification card on their person or boat to prove compliance. Sometimes difficult when you are in a bathing Suit on a boat. I move that we pass Senate bill 866.

The gentleman from Fairfax .
[Unknown]
I think today is my lucky day. Not one but two bills from this patron. Senate bill 906 would make it a penalty or increase a penalty for introducing the snakehead fish not only into the state but within the state. Back in 2004 when we discover the these invasive fish species in Virginia, we made it a crime in 2005 and made it a misdemeanor one. Now that it has been here for a decade some of the populations are finding themselves outside of the potomac area. We want to make sure that the penalties are the same inside as well as coming in so we stop the types of invasive fish coming in and we don't want to have the bad actors slip away. With that I ask that we pass the bill shall the bill pass. The clerk will close the roll.

Michael Webert

Bill Howell

Michael Webert
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I rise and ask that many of you do what I 'm going to do and hold your nose and vote in support of the legislation. As someone in agriculture and someone who is subject to a lot of federal regulation, this legislation is a direct result of politicians trying to make trying tothemselves feel good. What happened in 2011 is we had food safety issues. Outstanding system essentially worked. Human error occurs every day. They found the source of that human error and corrected the problem. But Mr. Speaker, so some politicians decided that our citizens needed to be wrapped in bubble tape and we have to prevent things from happening. Human error sometimes is very hard to prevent. Essentially, Mr. Speaker, this bill is a result of an overcorrection. We have one of the safest food systems in the world. Everything is traceable. We now have eids that go into the databasele so you can trace it all the way back to the source. We have a little that is the result of legislation passed six years ago and they had to roll out the rules. And Mr. Speaker, I would attest to you that the reason you have elections end the way they do is because as the rules come out and they become everybody dent, that we have to take measures. And this measure is a guard against the federal government. Because Mr. Speaker when I have somebody coming on to my farm and this is for produce consumed raw and has exceptions so only affects about 400 farms in the commonwealth, but, Mr. Speaker, I would rather deal with the gentleman who lives in my area that I see at church, that I see in the supermarket, who is going to come and enpeck my produce as opposed to somebody who is going to be coming from Washington or maryland is where the nearest testing station is for the fda. Not only that, Mr. Speaker, if I 'm going to call and complain to somebody. I would rather call May state Delegate than my congressman. Thank you. Shall the bill pass? The clerk will close the roll.
