2015 Session: 45 Days to Go

We’re over halfway through the 2015 session!  Friday marked the halfway point in this year’s 90-day legislative session.  Veteran legislators keep telling me that it is going to get even busier in the next 45 days and I find that hard to believe - I’m not sure how I could pack more into my days!  Last week was my busiest week yet, with five days of hearings in the Appropriations Committee, and four hearings in other committees advocating for bills on which I am the lead sponsor.

Budget Town Hall

Today, Senator Ferguson, Delegate Hammen and I hosted a Budget Town Hall for our constituents and all those interested in learning about the FY2016 budget.  I was blown away by the turnout!  Nearly 100 people braved the snowy forecast to join us for a discussion on this year's budget and its implications for our City, for our communities, and for our schools.  We began with an overview of the budget process, talked about the structural deficit, and then moved into issue areas.  Del.
