The Senator from Rockingham, Senator Obenshain .
Mark Obenshain
Mr. President, I move the bill pass and speaking to that. This bill simply provides that retired for former commonwealth attorneys and retired and deputy commonwealth attorneys shall have permission and have the ability to carry a firearm. And it sets strict limitations that requires that they leave in good standing. They have to carry with them a written certification from the former boss if it is an assistant commonwealth attorney and if they can't fill those conditions they can get in line and get a concealed carry permit.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Senator. The Senator from Fairfax city, Senator peterson.

Would the gentleman yield.
[Unknown]
He yields.
[Unknown]
Is there any obstacle for them going to a class and getting a concealed carry permit?
[Unknown]
There is not. However, a couple of things to point out. Number one is it takes time. And it May be that these folks have had their gun rights while they are a deputy or commonwealth's attorney and then during that 30 to 60 day period it May take for them to get a permit any May not be able to carry. Moreover, these are folks who have been engaged in criminal prosecutions many are violent crimes and this gives them the right to carry in places where you couldn't even carry with a permit.

The senior Senator from Virginia beach, Senator Wagner .
Frank Wagner
Thank you, Mr. President. Move that House bill 1883 pass and speaking to that motion.
[Unknown]
The Senator has the floor.
Frank Wagner
This moves the penalty standards for occupational safety health vie headaches in the course of ting in pecs to the level dictated to us by the federal government. The threat is it we don't make the change and raise the code that they will take away the Virginia occupational safety health administration's ability to do those inspections and they can only be done by the federal osha. So, the most businesses around the commonwealth and those reluctantly support this bill because they prefer to have the inspections performed by the Virginia occupational safety and health administration as oh is pooed to the feds. With that explanation I would beehive the motion so the bill passes.

[Unknown]
What it bill does as you are aware when the affordable care act passed we had to go through and revise a number of revisions in the code of Virginia make sure it mirrored the requirements of the affordable care act. There is anticipation it will be modtied or repealed. This bill what it does is anticipate there will be some type of repeal or version of the affordable care act and that automatically our code would revert back to those areas that are allowed based on whattever bill congress would make.
[Unknown]
The Senator from ale Alexandria .
[Unknown]
Would the gentleman yield for a yes?
[Unknown]
I yield.
[Unknown]
He yields, Senator .
[Unknown]
I would ask the nor while it is likely that the affordable care act May be repealed or replaced if some portions, we keep hearing that from Washington although we haven't seen a plan yet. Does this bill repeal only those portions changed from Washington and replace them with other provisions.
[Unknown]
The senior Senator .
[Unknown]
It reverts it back to the way the code of Virginia was logily before we put the reinvestigations in to comply with the affordable broadcast kill.
[Unknown]
Would the gentleman yield for one more question?
[Unknown]
Would the senior Senator Senator yield?
[Unknown]
Sure.
[Unknown]
He yields, Senator .
[Unknown]
The Senator said that it would see that we remain in compliance. And I just wanted to know, does it make any provisions if what is needed to comply is different than what there are today or merely just cancel what we have got now?
[Unknown]
The senior Senator from Virginia beach.
[Unknown]
It would cancel and if there applicable to to the previous. It would become the rules we would operate under. If congress does pass something we will all be back here shortly after to deal with a number of issues. This is anticipatory in nature realizing we might not be in session when the changes come.
[Unknown]
Speaking brief play.
[Unknown]
Senator you have the floor.
[Unknown]
I would say what this is talking about is repealing pieces of the affordable act and not replacing them and since we have no clue what congress is going to do this is a bit premature and I would ask folks to vote no.
Bill Howell
The gentleman from Virginia beach yield for a question?
[Unknown]
Would the senior Senator yield?
[Unknown]
He yields.
[Unknown]
, Senator .
[Unknown]
So I was reading the enactment clause which talks about I guess repealing the affordable care act. I'm trying to decide how do you figure out whether the affordable care act as been repealed. Suppose we keep the preexisting condition exclusion. Does that mean the affordable care act got repealed or not if we keep pieces of it?
[Unknown]
The senior Senator ?
[Unknown]
I don't know the answer to be honest with you. I don't know if that counts as a full repeal or just that one portion if it was preexisting conditions or age or if a child can be on the child's health insurance policy. I don't know if that would or not.
[Unknown]
Would the gentleman yield for a further yes.
[Unknown]
He yields, Senator .
[Unknown]
I don't know what it means either and I read it and doesn't say fullrepeal or parks repeal or 20% refeel. The bill doesn't state who decides whether it is repealed or not. If we have to go to our attorney general and ask him whether this law is in eforecast or would to bill hazel or the governor. Who decides whether orb not the affordable care act has been repealed. I'm not sure how everybody is supposed to figure it out the way this is written.
[Unknown]
The senior Senator ?
[Unknown]
I don't know how the federal legislation reads. In the state when there is a bill that says rae peel and replace at the state level. I would think if the federal bill said repeal and replace that would be considered an action by the federal government which repealed the affordable care act and replaced it with whatever they came up with. Yes it was repeal and replaced with another bill judge and I would point out that the bill could become effective 1 July 2017 or when the act is repealed and replaided. I assume if a repeal and replace, that would be considered an appeal and I would assume that the governor at the time would then consider that it was repealed and that this act would take effect.
[Unknown]
Thank you.
[Unknown]
Go the gentleman yield for another question.
[Unknown]
Would the Senator yield for an additional question?
[Unknown]
Sure.
[Unknown]
He yields, Senator .
[Unknown]
Normally when we have an occurrence, where the but a doesn't woman -- there is some person in the government that makes a certification that hags is happened so that everybody knows that the condition has been he met and the whole world, the insurance companies, public, you know, our department of health has a clue what the is. I mean was there any discussion requiring an actual certification point? We had a bill about repeal of the clean power plan and I know that the stake holders in that bill showed up and said we don't know how to determine if something is repealed or not and the committee felt there was too much ambiguity to go there. Was there any discussion about designate a person to decide whether the affordable care act has been repealed enough to --
[Unknown]
We got to a question there eventually. Let me answer by this statement. I think the whole world is going to know when it is repeal and reenacted. I don't think we will have no problem or knowledge of knowing when that happens. Suspect the whole world and the entire country and congress if and when a will is signed by the president everybody will know it has been repealed or replaced. There was no discussion to answer the question to the final answer. There was no discussion about who within the state government would decide whether it has been repealed or reenacted or not. I think the human cry across the country, whichever way it goes on whichever side you are on will be heard and I don't think there will be any doubt one way or the other whether it has been repealed.
[Unknown]
The Senator has the floor.
[Unknown]
Thank you, Mr. President. I mean I don't think there is any doubt where in bill is headed if it gets out of here and what the governor is going to do with it. It seems to me this airport ready for prime time. The way -- this tinge ain't ready for prime time. I think it will interject more chaos than doing nothing. I don't think anybody will be able to figure out whether or not the bill is align or no.
[Unknown]
Think this is the way this is structured. Doesn't make any sense. I don't know why we are passing it. I mean I know why we are debating it but in terms of a cirrus policy matter I just don't think this legislation is going to accomplish anything except create a lot of confusion. I would hope we vote it down.
[Unknown]
The Senator from Roanoke city, Senator Edwards .
John Edwards
Mr. President, would the senior Senator from vero beach virginiabeach yield for a quest?

Would the Senator yield?

[Unknown]
Mr. President, would the Senator answer the question isn't this at best putting the cart before the horse.
[Unknown]
The senior Senator from Virginia beach.
[Unknown]
Mr. President, I would reply to the Senator from Roanoke city, no, I on the believe it. What I won't know what the letter of the law and what congress will pass and what timing the congress if they give any at all in terms of implementing whatever new healthcare plan that they come up with that we need to be able to respond nimbly in the commonwealth of Virginia and so I think this bill would be all together appropriate.
[Unknown]
Mr. President, speaking against the bill.
Bill Howell
The gentleman has the floor.
[Unknown]
I think it explains why it makes no sense at all. It is strictly a political bill, we know that. Congress has talked about I beyond know for many years repealing the affordable care act. Here is with the new administration almost a month and nobody has a clue it is a to what they will do. They keep talking with maybe this year and maybe next year we have no idea what is going to happen. It May be nothing is going to happen. It makes no sense to pass a bill anticipating something that May or May not happen and if it does happen you don't know where ital be. It means nothing. It makes no jens.
[Unknown]
I would hope we would say no to this bill. Thank you, Mr. President.

[Unknown]
A minor has two parents. What if one is okay with disclosure and the other is not.
[Unknown]
The Senator from Stafford .
[Unknown]

[Unknown]
The Senator from Fairfax final question.
[Unknown]
Would the Senator yield.
[Unknown]
I yield.
[Unknown]
Let's say a news paper gets permission from one parent and not the other and publishes is it in violation of --

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the fingerprint background check bill for daycares. We already had a sunset of July of 2018 on the bill, but our friends down the Hall, out of an overabundance of caution, or perhaps optimism, wanted to add the language which is in the calendar indicating that if any provision of the federal child care block grant act of 2014 is repealed or done away with in between now and July 1st, 2018, then that provision, the correspond being provision in this background check would also be null and void.

Ryan McDougle
Mr. President, the House substitute, we had a lot of discussion about this bill when it first came through, and I 'm disappointed to say if you live in a rural area, then you are going to get no help getting 4-g or 5-g because of all the language stripped o.U. -- out of this. If you're still driving in the urban area, then you might get some help. So unfortunately, as reagan tries to watch our ipad in the rural areas, she will be very disappointed. And I am very disappointed. Mr. President, what this bill now is limited to is, it deals with small cell devices on existing structures only. It doesn't deal with any new devices, new structures, don't deal with zoning in rural areas, it only deals with the existing infrastructure, small cell wireless, and creates standardize the fees, schedules and zoning processes for those small cell facilities. So with that, Mr. President, I begrudgingly move that we accept the House substitute.

Tommy Norment
Thank you, Mr. President. A couple of things. I know some of you have an expectation of a commitment here in a few minutes. We only need two members to remain to adjourn at the appropriate time and everyone else can depart. So I 'm confident that at least two individuals will remain here on it. Mr. President, if I could deviate just one moment, please.
[Unknown]
Absolutely, Senator .
Tommy Norment
Mr. President, tomorrow I 'm going to take up a point of personal privilege that I am going to pass on tonight because I want one of the senators in particular to hear it. As a result of some spontaneous comments, and I will be generous in characterizing it as that, the Senator from Fairfax city has generated a little bit of an issue. And I 'm going to address that on a point of personal privilege that will surround the word of collegiality. So I will be taking that up tomorrow. But everyone can leave, with the exception of two senators, unless you would like to remain for a while, then don't feel like you have to go. Senator Lucas, I know you would be one of the two, won't you? [ laughter ] with that, two of us will wait to adjourn.
