"Be the change. Do the work."
A note about our Constituent Services work: There have been some frustrations expressed with our requirement that you let us know if you are a resident of the 95th District. While I understand that concerns and issues often do not have the same borders as districts, my primary commitment is to the people I serve and then I will do as much as I can for others. Feel free to reach out to your own Delegate if you do not live in the 95th District. Here's a link to find out which Delegate has the honor of serving you: Who's My Legislator

Del. Cia Price, D-Newport News, also introduced a bill this session advocating for domestic workers’ rights. The General Assembly passed HB 1864, which expands the definition of employer in the Virginia Human Rights Act to protect domestic workers from workplace discrimination. The act prohibits workplace discrimination based on race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability and other factors.

But the compromise legislation has drawn criticism from some Democratic lawmakers and advocates, who have taken issue with key provisions of the bill, including how the specifics of new commercial and criminal justice regulations will be decided next year, when Democrats may no longer control both chambers of the state legislature, The Washington Post notes. "By legalizing without all the guardrails in place, I feel the message can be misconstrued ... that we have dropped the ball on the justice pieces," said Del. Marcia Price (D-Newport News), according to the Post. "Even the thought of business before justice is hard to stomach."

Nearly eight years after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a key provision of the landmark 1965 Voting Rights Act, Democrats in Virginia are poised to enact state-level legislation they say would boost voter protections.
Backers of the Virginia Voting Rights Act say it's the most comprehensive bill of its kind — and the first in the South. The legislation cleared a final vote on Thursday and now goes to Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam. "As we've seen on other issues, we can't rely on the Supreme Court or the federal level always, and so states have to protect themselves," said Democratic state Del. Cia Price, one of two sponsors of the legislation. Price's bill was inspired by portions of the federal Voting Rights Act that were altered by a 2013 high court ruling.

Video: Delegates Simon, Price, Gooditis, Ayala, Mullin Rip Republicans’ “Unfounded and “Dangerous” Lies About the 2020 Election
See below for video from yesterday’s Virginia House of Delegates meeting, as Democrats – Del. Marcus Simon, Del. Wendy Gooditis, Del. Cia Price, Del. Hala Ayala, Del. Mike Mullin – talked a new report from the Virginia Dept. of Elections which found that the 2020 election in Virginia was extraordinarily safe, secure and successful, and pushed back on Republican falsehoods about voting and elections. In stark contrast, Virginia House Republicans – Del. Dave LaRock, Del. Todd Gilbert, Del. Glenn Davis – spewed out their usual lies about mythical “voter fraud” and other idiocy, pushing their (in Del. Simon’s words) “unfounded” “without merit” “dangerous” “narrative that casts doubt on the integrity of our election process…in spite of all the evidence” to the contrary.
- As Del. Cia Price explained, Democrats “will go to great lengths to protect our democracy and make sure it’s fair and accessible” and to fight back against “targeted efforts of voter suppression.”
