Bill Howell
The gentleman from Stafford .
[Unknown]
I rise for a point of personal privilege and
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor. Introduction.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, members of the House, I rise this morning for the last time. It is a rare treat for you to hear from me two days in a row. This is a first for me. I haven't made it a habit of speaking here because there are many here that are much more articulate than I am. But make no assumptions, I have had strong opinions on the hot issues discussed in these chambers. I've had plenty of time to reflect on my time here, and I can unequivicably tell you that serving here has been one of the high honors of my life. I can't thank you all individually, but know that I have the highest respect for each of you. We haven't always agreed but that's what democracy is all about. Debate and compromise, always serve your constituents and do what is right. I hope that I have exhibited those qualities. Just a few minutes ago, we heard from governor bob mcdonald and he talked about the Virginia way and I 'm glad he reminded me of that for these final remarks because I think if I had to serve in the House of representatives in similar circumstances, I don't think I would survive very long in that climate. I know what I 'm doing is unusual. Those who know me best and some are in the gallery understand my motivation. After cutting through all the extraneous stuff, it comes down to a simple promise I made 13 years ago. I promised my daughter, emily. That I would dedicate myself to making the world safer for children and I would hope to spare parents the heart break of losing a child. It's that simple. And that's what I 've done. Not my decision to not run for re-election but going back to a place where I could make a bigger contribution was greatly influenced by a promise. That's as simple as that. I want to thank you all, and I say to you God bless you and God bless the commonwealth of Virginia. [applause].
[Unknown]
Thank you. Mr. Speaker, excuse me, I mentioned that in the gallery of people who know me best, and I would ask that they rise. One of the biggest surprises for me when I first arrived here was our emphasis on veterans. I live in that world, and I always thought of these issues as federal. Not so, and I am proud of the actions taken by this body to help our veterans. We sometimes talk about the family of veterans. But unless you've walked in their shoes, it is difficult to really understand what it takes to make a career in the military. In my life, it took a small woman from louisiana, who has not just stood by me but kept my family together, raised my children, picked me up when I was down, understood when I was called away on short notice, attended teachers' meetings, kept my life orderly, knocked on doors, held hosted fundraisers and I think you kind of get the picture. That person in my life is my wife, kay, who has been my strength and backbone for 38 years. [applause]
[Unknown]
Thank you. In many cases, we talk about family as just being a wife or your children, but in my case, my support structure came from a larger group than that, and my wife's mother and brother and sister who accepted me unconditionally 38 years ago were there today. My mother-in-law, barbara books, this is her 86th birthday, and she's come down here to celebrate with me these last few days, so I ask the House to give them a warm welcome. [applause]
Bill Howell
We are delighted to have kay and her mom and family with us today. We know how much a spouse contributes to everything we get to do. And I know, mark, on behalf of the body that they're going to miss you greatly. I won't. [laughter] let me finish, because I 'll be able to come to the board of supervisor meetings and complain. [laughter] the gentleman from Poquoson, Mr. Helsel
Gordon Helsel
Ask for an introduction.
Bill Howell
Gentleman has the floor.
Gordon Helsel
In the gallery today, we have Ms. Hanna beach. If she would rise with her mother and father if they're in the gallery. They May not be but they're in one of the holding rooms outside. Hanna is a student of sproutley gifted center. She's a Hampton public school and serves in grades 3-8. She has demonstrated her capacity for complex thinking and abstract reasoning. Hanna is a member of the junior honor society, vice president for her eighth grade class and a participant in several extra curricular activities like soft ball, swimming and arts. She volunteers at the old neighborhood association and st. Johns church neighborhood lunch program. Hanna has a keen interest in politics and the legislative process, and she hopes to perhaps be a Page next year. She and her mom nancy and her father are here with us today. I would ask that you would give hanna a warm House welcome. [applause]

Thank you. Ladies and gentlemen, joining us in the gallery this morning is Ms. Betty brand and a group of young men and women from Virginia hours council and -- horse council. I'd ask them to rise. They represent various organizations all across the commonwealth and are visiting to promote the commonwealth's diverse horse industry. They would like to you stop by the tent to see a few horses they have brought with them. Mrs. Brand also wanted to remind the body of the annual legislative ride on May 5-7 at the grays mountain lodge and ask that legislators please come and bring their families. I'd also like to thank Mrs. Brand for their contributions this year for the Virginia agribusiness dinner we had. It's their great work that we got to enjoy a very privileged evening. I would ask the body if we would give them a very warm House welcome. [applause]
[Unknown]
I'm delighted to have visitors with us today, and we thank you for taking time to visit your capitol. The gentlemanwoman from chester hill. Ms. Robinson
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. I rise for an introduction.
Bill Howell

In the gallery I would like to introduce to the House the monnican high school junior rotc. Stand up, folks. At monnican high school, students are enrolled in the air force junior officer training core to foster teamwork and pride with curriculum that has inspections, drill competitions, charity projects and leadership opportunities. Students in the program are not being groomed for military service but the values they learn are quite similar to those embraced by the u.S. Armed forces. All junior rotc classes have a physical fitness component which will give cadets the opportunity to improve physical fitness and compete in varied sports activities. All cadets will also have the opportunity to belong to various air force sponsored teams to include a color guard, grill team and raider team. Please enjoy me in a warm House welcome. [applause]
Bill Howell
We're very pleased to have the students from monnican with us today and thank you for your participation in junior air force rotc. The gentleman from Virginia beach, Mr. Davis
Glenn Davis

[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, as with many of you, I woke up this morning facing the decision of what I would wear, what Suit, what tie. However, one item I knew I 'd be wearing today was the captain america cuff links given to me by the chairman of transportation in honor of today's guest. You see, captain america was a fictional world war ii patriotic super hero created by marvel however, today, I have the comics. Distinct honor with my colleagues from Hampton roads of introducing a real life world war ii patriotic super hero, colonel ed chames. He was born in Virginia. His parents raised four children in ortho dox household. Ed had a tough childhood. His father passed away at the age of 42 when ed was just five years old. Things were tough that time for jewish boys. There were times you had to fight your way through. I was a tough s.O.B., not me though, just touch. Their challenging years taught ed to be independent, resourceful and determined. Following the attack on pearl harbor and only at 19 years of age, ed went to fort monroe in Hampton and volunteered for the 506th parachute infantry regime, a new tactical invention at the time was a precursor to today's delta force. He was sent to georgia for training starting as a private in item company third battalion of the 506th parachute infantry regime. The 506th had the toughest training of any regime in the military. They had 7,000 initial volunteers that had to be whittled down to just 2500 soldiers. They wanted to discharge ed after he hurt his knee on his very first parachute jump, but he wouldn't let them, and after walking 149 miles from this training base camp to fort benning in full Gear over 3 1/2 days, he was determined that he would make it through the training. In england, ed was promoted to operation sergeant, and he built the sand tables, the airborn unit used in planting the air drop into normandy on "d day." its first combat jump was into normandy that day as part of operation overlord. Later in life, in every battle from the time they invaded the continent to the time they went on top of eagle's nest, hitler's hideout, there was no jubilation, they had a good meal. They had steak and ice cream, the first time they'd had it in years. I guess you would call it the last supper. When crossed the continent, all hell broke loose. He rose through the ranks on June 13, 1944, he received a battlefield commission to second lieutenant. He was the first nco in the third battalion to receive such a commission in normandy. He was transferred then to easy company and took charge of his third platoon. Ed chames fought with easy company and operation market garden and volunteered for operation pegasus. He was wounded once in his left leg during the campaigns, and he fought with the rest of e company in the battle of the bulge. After surviving the bitter cold of the battle of the bulge, he endured the shock of being an early liberator of dekal. He also experienced hitler's mountain retreat known as eagle's nest and took a bottle of monogrammed coniac from adolph hitler's private collection back to Virginia beach. [cheering and applause] -- which he opened during the celebration of his son's barmitzfa in 1961. After world war 2, he served in the army reserve when he retired as a colonel. When asked about what he's most proud of during his service, he listed two things. First, his battlefield commission. Second, that he brought home more men from his platoon than any other of the 200 platoons in the 101st airborn division. The rest, he says, is what I was supposed to do and how I was supposed to do it. Since retirement, colonel chames has traveled extensively in israel and the middle east serving both his country and his jewish groups. He's been featured in the book "airborn", the combat story of e. Chemes and appeared in "band of brothers" on hbo. He proudly travels the country representing his band of brothers in the regime. And colonel chames and ida, his lovely wife, just recently celebrated their 75th wedding anniversary. [applause] Mr. Speaker with us today on the House floor, we have colonel chams and his wife, ida, as well as granddaughter sarah, and in the gallery, we have colonel chams' grandson, Dr. Aaron chams as well as members of the 101st airborn. Eforce specialist Mr. Joe nolan, and Mr. Speaker, it's been an honor today to join my Hampton roads colleagues to introduce this american hero on the floor and present colonel chams with House resolution 834. We ask that we give them a warm welcome and show our appreciation to the sacrifices to our nation. [cheering and applause] [applause continues]
[Unknown]
Colonel chachames, we are honored to have you with us today and we thank you so much for your years of sacrifice for our country and helping us to be where we are today. We could not have done that without the work and efforts and risks so many women and men like you have taken for our country. Thank you so much for being here with us today. [cheering and applause]

I stand today to commend my colleague from Stafford, Delegate dudenhaffer. Mark is a 1974lsu grad. If you know mark, lsu football and basketball is very important to him. He has his mba from tulane, and, [applause]. Of course, I think we all know his great marine corps background and how dedicated his service was and I know someone trying to work on veterans legislation, he has been absolutely essential to what has gone through. But I really got to know mark, when we went to the buckley -- I just blew that, the buckley school of public speaking. The speaker thought that was a good idea for me and mark to go, so we were classmates, and, of course, if you go to the buckley school, they pick you apart for a week, so we got to know each other very well. They actually count how many times you say "I think" and count how many times you go "uh." it was extremely embarrassing and they would throw things at you, et cetera as a matter of fact, mark and I got to debate each other I think the very last day. Kay was there. It's just a great week to get to bond with a pretty special person and get to know him and maybe get to know his heart a little bit better for service in this place. And this is sort of a tough subject. Not many of us probably come to the House of delegates the way the Delegate dudenhaffer did. We always want to serve in a legislative body but really, mark came because of the death of his daughter, emily.

Mr. Speaker, thank you. I want to join the majority leader in acknowledging a guy, mark Dudenhefer. It's tough to say goodbye to one third of the three colonels in this organization I know, Mr. Speaker that, Stafford County will benefit from his leadership as they have in the past and I 'm sure the speaker won't beat you up too bad at evening meetings. Mr. Speaker, I want to say something about my good friend. You know, when we were young lieutenants, we had to learn map reading and we had this compass, and you would go to the map, and you would use your compass to adjust our azmath so you were going true north as opposed to magnetic north, and there's a difference. And it took a little training for some of us to get this right. But I think about that and I think about mark dudeen dudenhe, because, Mr. Speaker, his compass doesn't just point to true north, it points to objective truth. And it points to doing what's right. And I have always admired him for that, Mr. Speaker. But Delegate -- what Delegate Dudenhefer brought to this body and what he has brought to local involvement as well is moral and ethical clarity. Something we vitally need in a country who has seen the demise of virtue. All I can say, if there is any young person listening to the sound of my voice, you will not find a better example of a local leader, of a House of delegates member who is devoted to doing what is right.
Scott Lingamfelter
We will in addition you, mark, and godspeed. >>

Good morning. As you all know, I 'm not one to pop up and talk, so I will be my usual self and try to be brief and offer some clarity. I have a couple of things I want to share. But first, Mr. Speaker, I would be remiss if I didn't say that -- add my voice to the people who will miss you. Your leadership has permeated -- permeated this whole body and I, for one, appreciate that. But I 'm going to rise today for a point of personal privilege to talk about Black this is something that is history month. Near and dear to me. You guys have heard me before. I talked about interesting topics like who invented the potato chip, and often times, things that were of value. And I think I would like to frame this, because it is an opportunity, I think, for our country to celebrate its diversity. All of us have overcome some diversity, some, more public than others, and these are things that we need to think about and these are things we need to celebrate. So I value this moment. This was a part that my mom and dad used to always share with me, but they always would temper my enthusiasm to talk by saying -- my father had a saying, he said I 've been blessed by God with two ears and one mouth and you should use them in that proportion. And I will do that. What I wanted to just talk about today was just some of the things that are happening on the local level. We often times get up and talk about things that people who have done great things, and I want to frame that a little bit by one of the things that I 've been admiring about my eight years here is I think we are 100 ordinary individuals who have been tasked with an exceptional job, and that is to get good legislation that is positive to the local, and raise the voices, and I think a lot of that plays into what we celebrate in Black history month, and what we are doing with local enforcement there, is we have developed an african-american society museum, and one of the people that they have recently enshrined is jeffrey t. Wilson, he started out in the early 1924 with the color notes, and just a communication for people who look like me quhafs happening, and I remember to reflect back on what my mom used to say, for those of you -- millennials might not know this, but my mom used to say you haven't arrived if it's not in ebbny -- ebony magazine or jet. That's what we read. So we have established an historical place for those things. And I offer that to you just as a reminder that Black history month should be more than just a month in which we talk about people who have done things. It's about a challenge to our young people and ourselves to break those ceilings, to break down those barriers, so that we just don't have a month to talk about these things, we have a whole year. And so with that, Mr. Speaker, I will sit down and thank you for your attention, and I appreciate your listening to me. Thank you.

Today, we have the privilege of celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Virginia health care foundation. Mr. Speaker, sometimes the general assembly, down here we get it right. So this organization was formed in 1992, and I want it to thank and recognize the current and former trustees who are here with us on the floor, thank them for volunteering their time and leadership. We have chairman, founding executive director, we all know ralph Howell, john haiger, joe minor, Lee minotivt, Dr. Clarion Johnson, richard gere, and debbie oswald. Mr. Speaker, this was created as a public-private partnership, with a mission of increasing access to primary health care for uninsured virginians, those who did not have access to health care. We charge thunderstorm to leverage state funds with contributions from the private sector and other sources. The foundation's entrepreneurial approach has enabled it to provide primary care to 600,000 virginians in every part of the state. Mr. Speaker, the good news here is that this group has leveraged $11 for every state dollar they got, and there are pretty good numbers here, Mr. Speaker. They have obtained $4.6 billion worth of free medicine for uninsured virginians with chronic illness, more than 306,000 uninsured virginians have benefited from this, not to mention the free clinics, being able to dispense these medications. They have obtained $53 million in federal funding for additional community health centers. In 1992, we had 33 free clinics and fqhcs in Virginia, today, 214. I think that speaks to the success of this group. They led the private sector outreach for famous, they have created organizations that have serve the commonwealth in their own right, rx -- rx, oral health and Virginia navigating which our colleague ron hager serves as chairman. To these are just a few of the things this group has done over the last 25 years. It's a great example of philanthropic -- philanthropy. And I hope that we will take a minute here and thank and con gat late -- congratulate the Virginia health care on their anniversary. Congratulations.
[Unknown]

Thank you Mr. Speaker, Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, with all of what happened yesterday, sometimes we lose track of other folks who May be going different ways from this body, and so I wanted to at least call attention from our side of the aisle and congratulate mark Dudenhefer for -- I don't knowy wants to run for office again and run for local office! My God you don't get paid very much money and all you do is get aggravation! But more power to you, Delegate. We are sorry to see you go. I know -- I can only imagine what it must be like to lose a child, and the fact that you would be dedicating so much of your life to trying to make things better for other people, I think, is a very great compliment to you and your family, and we will miss you. Beyond that, we have our colleague who is leaving us as well. Now she is running for an office that makes sense, because it actually pay as lot of money!
[Unknown]
But you know, -- pays a lot of money!
[Unknown]
But there are those that sort of pop up all the time and there are those of us who do the heavy lifting day after day with a kind of quiet leadership that Delegate Hester embodies. You know, she doesn't get up much on the floor, but I will tell you, she is pretty strong in terms of advocating for her constituents when you get in those rooms. Remember, cardinal rule of politics, decisions are made by those people in the room at the time. She gets in the room, and she is arguing strongly for her constituents, and it makes a difference, whether it's in terms of education policy, education funding. So I think your constituents are really going to miss you when you leave us, and hopefully you will find somebody good to take your place so we can have some of that quiet leadership coming back. So on behalf of our side of the aisle, we wish you well, both of you, we will miss you and hope you come back and see us on a regular basis. Thank you Mr. Speaker.

Todd Gilbert
The substitute is agreed to. The gentleman from Shenandoah .
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen, this bill initially did two things. It allowed commissioners and deputy commissioners of the worker's compensation commission to carry a concealed weapon without a permit, and it also allowed them to carry lawfully into a courthouse. Accord to the patron of the bill the places where they work are considered courthouses or they work in courthouses, I can't remember exactly how that was explained. That was part of the problem. What we did was remove the provision, allowing them to carry without a permit so that they would have to get a permit like everybody else but this simply allows such commissioners to carry into a courthouse lawfully as do judges and other law enforcement people currently, prosecutors and the like. I move the bill pass, Mr. Speaker.
[Unknown]
Thank you.

The gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Simon.
Marcus Simon
Mr. Speaker, speaking to the bill?
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
Marcus Simon
Mr. Speaker, members of the House, we have is a bunch of these bills today. We've had a bunch all session along. I think the first time I got up in this session I made the point what I think is a theme here on you all's side of the aisle. Let me give you a list of places. Courthouses, kinder gardens, emergency shelters, foster homes. What do all these places have in common? These are all places we are seeking to make it easier for certain classes of people to carry guns and bring them with them, talking about 18-year-old, nonviolent felon, game wardens, deputy commonwealth's attorneys, now we are talking about worker's compensation commissioners, and deputy worker's compensation commissioners. Carrying guns into courthouses. The theme here is that I guess there's a belief that guns everywhere, all the time, held by everybody, is the way we are going to solve our gun violence problem. Thoaf of us on -- those of us on this side of the aisle don't think that's the right approach. This bill continues that approach and is going to make the commissioners themselves, the people they see, the people in those courthouses less safe to have more people carrying guns in the courthouses. I hope it be the pleasure of this body on this bill and the number we are going to see throughout the rest of the day to vote for on the bill.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Fauquier, Mr. Webber.

The bill also requires agencies that do not have regulatory authority to annually file with the Virginia registrar of regulations for publication in the Virginia register of regulations, a list of any guidance documents upon which such agencies currentlyie lie -- currently rely. This bill was a recommendation of the administrative law advisory committee and I would move passage of the bill.

Senate bill 1023, a bill to amend and reenact a section of the code of Virginia relating to concealed handgun permits, access to the Virginia criminal information network, pill was reported from the committee on militia, police and public safety.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Prince William, Mr. Lingamfelter.
Scott Lingamfelter
Thank you Mr. Speaker, Senate bill 1023 prohibits sharing information regarding Virginia conceal handgun pr mits and Virginia crime information network with law enforcement in states that do not recognize Virginia 's concealed handgun permit as valid in that state. The bill requires that the department of state police maintain and publish an online list of states that recognize a Virginia conceal carry permit as valid in the state. The bill does not create a private cause of action. I move we pass the bill.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Alexandria, Mr. Levine.
Mark Levine
Thank you Mr. Speaker, speaking to the bill?
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
Mark Levine
Thank you Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, I see three major problems with this bill. The first is it harms law force men. Now, law enforcement comes in this chamber all the time, and we give them standing ovations, and they deserve it. What this bill says is that law enforcement shall not have information they need that can save their lives. It also prohibits it being used in a criminal investigation. Now, I know there are people who believe that guns everywhere is a good thing. And I will be the first to tell you that people with concealed carry permits, the vast majority of them are law abiding, good people. I don't think anyone in this chamber will say 100 percent of them are always good law abiding people. Law enforcement should have the tools they need to enforce the laws. Number two, I know there are some that are going to say this doesn't harm Virginia law enforcement, this harms law force nent in other states -- harms law enforcement in other states. What it does is encourage virginian toss break laws in other states. Why do do we care about that? Because if we pass laws in this chamber that encourages virginians to break the laws in other states, people in other states can pass laws in their states that encourage their citizens to break the law in Virginia. I don't want to see a war between the states, I don't think that retaliation is a good thing. The third thing, and this is kind of a legalistic point, but the law says notwithstanding any other provision of law. Now, we passed something with that language yesterday, notwithstanding any other provision of law, and when you think about it, it's like a super law. It means this law matters more than every other law in the books, and logically, you can't do that more than once. I don't know what happens when two bills say notwithstanding any other law, when the two laws confront each other. I guess a judge will have to work it out. I think it's badly drafted. I encourage the members to oppose the bill. Thank you Mr. Speaker.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Prince William, Mr. Lingamfelter.
Scott Lingamfelter
Yes, Mr. Speaker, I would just like to share with the body the genesis of this bill. The patron of the bill for several years has attempted to address a serious problem which doesn't harm law enforcement, but it does harm someone. It harms law asiding citizens who elect to protect themselves with their firearms, in our neighboring state of maryland, unfortunately. We don't have reciprocity. And there have been more than a few instances where people have been stopped simply because they have a conceal carry permit. That is an unfair and unjust harassment of virginians. And so Mr. Speaker, if you care about the rights of virginians, to protect themselves under the second amendment of the united states constitution, then I suggest that you should pass the bill.
Bill Howell
Gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Albo.
Dave Albo
Mr. Speaker, would the gentleman from Prince William, Delegate Lingamfelter, rise for a question?
[Unknown]
I have risen.
Dave Albo
The gentleman yields.
Bill Howell
As much as I hate to say this, the gentleman from Alexandria had a good point, I thought. So notwithstanding any provision of law, why is that there? What law is conflicting with this?
[Unknown]
I think that that provision is there, Mr. Speaker, primarily to clarify, given the complexity of the conceal carry permit reciprocity language, that's why I believe that that language is there.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, an additional question?
[Unknown]

Mr. Speaker, Senate bill 1075 is similar to my House bill 2148 which requires veterans services foundation to provide an annual report on its funding levels and services to general assembly. It also authorizes the board of trustees in the foundation to appoint an executive director and exercise personnel authority over that position and clarifies that the foundation May make direct requests for appropriations from the general assembly. There was a little rift between the veterans services and the veterans services foundation. I believe they worked everything out. I believe the administration is now on board with this.

Bill Howell

[Unknown]
Ladies and gentlemen of the House, sb1084 makes a technical charter change to the town of herndon's charter, in 2015, the town of herndon town council made an ordinance moving the elections from May to November, the town elections were held this past November and the mayor was elected to the third term, she and the council were sworn in January 21, 2016, and in doing so has helped the town save tax dollar funds. This change to the charter simply updates the charter to reflect the ordinance as advised by the electoral board. One thing to clarify with you all, there are three precincts in hearn dorn. Typically when we had a spring election, everybody went to one precinct. Since they have changed the election day to November, everyone was supposed to go to the regular precinct, which caused a lot of confusion, because the charter change had not gone into effect. This is something that's already taken place. As I said, there was not a big change in who was this is saving taxpayer elected. Dollars to the town. And I hope it is the pleasure of the body to pass this measure. Thank you.

Thank you Mr. Speaker. I would ask the gentleman, there are a lot of folks here who are perhaps not familiar with the Virginia defense force, and, you know, frankly, every time this comes up, I have to go back to the website and check out but today, when I went, I what they do. Looked at it and said that under the code, the Virginia defense force, quote, shall not be armed with firearms during the performance of their duty. And am I reading that wrong? Because it seems to me that this bill would arm them essentially when they are in nonduty status when they wouldn't be able to be armed when we were on duty status unless the governor authorized it.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, I respond to the gentleman that this bill does not touch the prohibition that he spoke to. It simply talks about their nonduty status.

I would ask the gentleman again, is it not the case that the Virginia defense force, absent a governor's instruction, shall not be armed with firearms during the performance of their duty, is that right?
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, I would respond to the gentleman that I am not personally familiar with the section that he is referring to, and it May well be that that section is referring to armed with military weapons as opposed to a personal weapon. If the gentleman would like me to take this by, we can certainly look into that.

Senate bill 1506, a bill to amend and reenact a section of the code of Virginia relating to applicant fingerprint database, federal bureau of investigation records. Bill was reported from the committee on militia, police and public safety.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Prince William, Mr. Lingamfelter.
Scott Lingamfelter
Thank you Mr. Speaker. Mr. Speaker, I want to take a little bit of time to explain this. This is a fairly complex bill that we spent a lot of time in militia actually going through, the bill 1506 authorizes the department of stays police to submit fingerprints and accompanying records to the fbi to be advised through the fbi's next generation identification rap back systems when an individual suspect to a criminal background check is arrested or convicted of a criminal offense not reported to the department which would disqualify that individual from licensure, certificate, so forth, and on voluntary service with that entity as well. Currently, employers who hire people into positions of trust such as teachers, security guards, nurses, or others May receive a snapshot of the employee's background as of the time of the fingerprint check, when they become employees. Here's what that means. A teacher who gets arrested for sexual exploitation of a minor and makes bond on a Saturday can return to school on a Monday. Or another example, a nurse who gets arrested for possession of narcotics can continue to treat patients and have access to narcotics through her employer. And so we would want to know those things, barrier crimes were committed by people who were required by virtue of their position to submit fingerprints. Under this rap back program, employers who choose to subscribe to the program will receive notifications of future virginian out of state arrests so that they can make appropriate employment decisions, and here's how the process would work. An employer who chooses to participate voluntarily in the program, it's a voluntary thing, if they want to participate, the employee is fingerprinted and consents to the enrollment of their prints in the rap back service. The employer submits the fingerprints to the Virginia state police for subscription in the rap back service. And when a subscribed employee is later arrested, if that's the case, the Virginia state police then is in a position to notify the contacts of the subscribing employer, instructing them to log into the website interface that the system has and verify the employee is still employed in the next position of trust. Upon verification, the state police then runs an employee criminal history and advises them the -- advising the employer only whether or not the employees have been arrested for a barrier crime. No other details are shared with the employer with respect to the crime. Just the fact that the barrier crime has occurred and the arrest has occurred. The employer May then conduct further investigation on its own and take appropriate measures at its discretion to protect a vulnerable population on employee services. I think it's important to understand what this means, what you are voting for, but I think it is a good bill in so much as someone who commit as barrier crime outside of Virginia, that employees have subscribed to this program, or employers have subscribed to this program will become aware that children might be endangered and so forth. So I hope you will support the bill.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker, ladies and gentlemen of the House, the primary purpose of this bill as it came out of the House was to clarify that the provisions in the code dealing with how to amend an hoa declaration didn't trump an actual declaration when the declaration was very specific about how you would make amendments to it. The Senate amendment deals with only a very small part of the bill dealing with the statute of limitations for when you could challenge an amendment to the declaration. The senateproof dollars going back to the original language which is one year after the effective date. I think the stakeholders are fine with that, so I move we accept this amendment.

Bill Howell
The gentleman from Charlottesville .
[Unknown]
Point of order.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
As I looked at this bill coming out of the House, it was very specific and it had to do with providing victims of domestic violence information about firearm safety and a training course. When it got over to the Senate, there are a lot of amendments that were put on this bill in the form of a substitute which dramatically increased the nature of the bill to include a list of local resources, contact information for sexual and domestic violence victims service providers, witness witness programs, legal aid, legal services office, crisis intervention hot line and individual support services and support groups, emergency companion services, emergency housing or transportation services. My point of order, is the substitute germane to the original House bill.
[Unknown]
I know the answer but we usually pretend like we are talking about it so if you want to come on up here. [laughter] [no audio]
[Unknown]
We have two issues here. In the Senate substitute. Is -- is germane. What goes beyond the scope of the substitute are the amendments proposed by the Senate. I am going to rule that the substitute is okay, but the amendments go too far and they are not germane. So the question before the body then is accepting the Senate substitute.

House bill 2191, a bill to amend and reenact a section of the code of Virginia relating to school boards procedures. Sec sexually expolicity instructional materials or related academic activities. Passed the House February 6, and sweptly passed the Senate with an -- subsequently passed the Senate with an amendment which is before the body.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Augusta, Mr. Landes.
Steve Landes
Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
[Unknown]
House bill 2191 you all May recall related -- is related to having our schools that have sexuallyexplicit instructional materials and activities to report and provide information related to those assignments to parents and if the assignments so wish they can request that an alternative can be provided. The language that we had in the House added the section of the code related to felonies for rain. What the Senate amendment does and I will ask us to accept, is add crimes against nature which is 18.2-361. Actually, we -- when we were cop templating the amendment as Delegate Albo was suggesting relating to narrowly defining the definition using that original code section we intended to pick up this code section as well. And unfortunately in we did not. So, that is -- it would now be with the Senate amendment the section dealing with rape, felony rape and sexual assault and also dealing with crimes against nature and that is what 18.2-361 does. Mr. Speaker I ask that the House agree to the sacramento.
Steve Landes
The gentleman from Arlington, Mr. Lopez.
Alfonso Lopez
Speaking to the amendment the gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
This is not a simple bill. And it is not a -- many folks who actually voted against Delegate vikki Bell 's bill regarding suspensions because we shouldn't get involved with school board issues have no problem with this bill. Folks with argue this is just an innocuous bill but it has the potential it create a number of minefields. Teachers are less like lie to teach anything that might be considered objectionable in the lessons. They will not want it to do two entire lessons for the same class. Teachers will avoid any concept that might be found objectionable. That what we mean by a slippery slope to backdoor censorship. Do we want to be the first state in the nation to have this kind of statewide policy. This is far too broad. Folks get up set and say this isn't about censorship but argue that we need to put the check on the concept of nobel prize which is it? Winners. Why are we okay with protecting children from ideas in schools? Government establishing laws to label literature in terms of a single factor regardless of the
Alfonso Lopez
Would the gentleman yield for factor. A question?
[Unknown]
Or meeting is wrong.
[Unknown]
Would the gentleman yield for a question?
[Unknown]
Certainly, Mr. Speak.
[Unknown]
The gentleman yields.
[Unknown]
I would ask the gentleman because he keeps saying that it is a bad idea that we would quote unquote protect kids from ideas. I have no doubt that beloved is a wonderful work and perhaps an important one. My question is, it does have ideas covering things like gang rain and beastallity. Would the gentleman be fine with us teaching that in, say, a first grade class.
Bill Howell
No, Mr. Speaker, responding to the gentleman the gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, that slippery slope kind of idea that somehow this is regarding first graders is really sort of offensive to they will teach beloved in ap teachers. English classes for 11 and 12th graders and the original issue is because it was brought up in an ap english class for a junior in high school. The fact is by taking something out of context what you are doing is bad for literature. It is bad for academia and it is really not who we should be. And so the idea somehow that this is going to be for first graders or second graders is really absurd.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker would the gentleman yield for another
[Unknown]
Would the gentleman yield for question? Another question?
[Unknown]
Gladly, Mr. Speaker.
[Unknown]
The gentleman yields.
[Unknown]
The gentleman just suggested he is actually fine with placing restrict,s on what ideas we expose kids to based off of the age groups. Did I hear that correctly?
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, responding to the question.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
Mr. Speaker, thank you. That is in credit edibley simplistic and not appropriate to what we are talking about regarding the overall slippery slope to backdoor censohship. What he is suggesting is that somehow teachers are not going to know any better. And the fact is that that is just simply not what we are talking about. We are talking about civics. We are talking about taking these things out of context. And what we are talking about is when people on the other side of the body actually talking about specific sections of literature, like in "beloved "which is about the horrors of slavery and talking about issues of gang rain and really horrific things, what they are doing is they are getting into the weeds of what it was, what it meant, you are actually educating kids in as real a way as possible about what slavery was. And so when you take it out of context, and when you do that, what you are really doing is you are being offensive to literature. You are being offensive to the educational process and being offensive to what our founders actually believed in. When you do that kind of simplistic argument it is about the kids. And it is not about literature. You are offending every professor who ever touched your heart. You are offending every academic that probably -- they are probably aghast right now at what we are doing. And so at end of the day, Mr. Speaker, what we have -- what we are talking about here is making ourselves a laughingstock again. We are talking about economic development. We are talking about what we should be doing. I really think that this is a very bad stuff in the wrong direction.
[Unknown]
I thank the gentleman. Speaking to the bill at the appropriate time.

Mr. Speaker, speaking to the bill or the amendments the gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
Since our computers are working I invite everyone to type in 18.2-361 crimes against nature. And when you read this you will understand why I am not going to read it on the House floor. All of this amendment -- all this amendment does is says if anything on this disgusting list of stuff that people do is in a book you have to tell a parent hey, want to let you know, it is in a book. That is all it does. But I would invite everybody here to look at that statute, statute, because when you vote on the Senate amendments if you vote no, you are voting to say that parents don't have to be warned that this kind of disgusting stuff is being required in their school.
Dave Albo
The gentleman from Fairfax, Mr. Hugo.
Tim Hugo
Mr. Speaker, speak to the measure.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
Tim Hugo
Mr. Speaker, I think the gentleman from Arlington misses the point. He talks about first graders but when they read beloved on the Senate floor last year started to read it they had to clear the pages out. What he is really missing the point is he said you know, talking about it is about the children. Actually, it is about the parents. It is letting this bill what it is going to do, it gives the parents the opportunity to make the decisions about their children. To make the decisions about what is appropriate for their children to read. We are not talking about kids 19, 20, 21. We are talking about young men and women and young boys and gills. Do they need to have it shoved in their face by education? I think the answer is no. The will is a good bill and empowers pay rents. If you don't understand that -- parents. If you don't understand that then you truly missed the point.

I must have missed something, Mr. Speaker.
[Unknown]
I would like to come back -- and then -- that is okay. Get from Prince William .
[Unknown]
Okay. Mr. Speaker, I would suggest that the gentleman from Arlington take the advice of the gentleman from Fairfax and read the section of the code here for everybody to hear. If he is really serious about it, then just read it. There should be no shame, shame,inhibition or reluctance to do that. If he doesn't want to read it I suggest maybe he is touching upon areas of unease that would be natural for anybody to experience. Moreover, the parents are the ones who give the authority to the teachers to teach in the first place. They can pull back that authority if they want to. The schools have no authority other than that which is given to them by the parents who are o are the principles and the schools are the agents. If they don't want this kind of material for their children they should at least be notified their children are being exposed to this kind of material. It is simple. Common sense, I arch the gentleman from Arlington to read the section of the code.
Bill Howell
The gentlewoman from Fairfax, Ms. Watts.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. Speaker. May I speak to the bill, to the amendment.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
I realize I heard a lot of repeats of what was said in previous debates so some of what I am going to say is will going to be a repeat. Reading the code, reading those words I had to go to the dictionary when I first read them a number of years ago to try to understand what I was really dealing with as far as criminal law. And that is where the breakdown occurs from the simple idea that a parent knows it are yaw just -- you justknow it and what weg into the law about the expensive sick sections, all of the sections under the sexual title because the morals and indecent liberties. It takes lawyers to look at those words and decide whether or not the parents' offense would, indeed, be captured in those words and are those words captured in the piece of literature? I repeat some of my examples. It is a felony to touch someone on the buttocks if they are under 13 years old. Now, are you going to scrub every book to make sure that there is no such improper touching of a 12-year-old? Of a 10-year-old? You know it exists in some of the more common pieces of literature. I mentioned before because that is the level of education I had was the tree grows in brooklyn. It was just what happened on the street. It was what -- what the child was dealing with. And it was as real when I read it probably when I was 10 years old as anything that I might have had to think about, about what was happening on the playground. But it is a felony. And by putting these words in the code, in code now, we are telling all of our school boards you better get a lawyer and look at every piece of literature, look at all of those hard to pronounce words in the code statutes and make sure that it doesn't apply because the normal english major which I ended up being isn't going to be able to make that translation and that is where I become concerned that it's going to be cut and dried, these are the books that you can deal with and these are the ones that you can't deal with. And that the beginning of an approved state list which I do not believe that in context at the proper age in the -- what is being conveyed in a work of literature or political science that we want to gut this kind of stranglehold on, thank you.
