Virginia and Transurban Sign Agreements to Invest More Than $1 Billion in Northern Virginia Transportation
Governor Ralph Northam announced today that the Commonwealth of Virginia has signed agreements with private partner Transurban to deliver critical transportation solutions along Interstate 95 (I-95), including the Occoquan Auxiliary Lane.
My office is now accepting applications for the 2019 class of the Greater Prince William Young Leaders Program.
The Greater Prince William Young Leaders Program will afford six to eight exceptional high school juniors and seniors from the 29th Senate District the opportunity to travel to Richmond during the General Assembly Session and learn about leadership and the legislative process.
Potential activites may include:
I just got off a conference call with Governor Northam and the Va Department of Emergency Management (VDEM) regarding Hurricane Florence, which is now a Category 4 storm. On Tuesday, Governor Northam called a state of emergency, mobilized the Virginia National Guard, and ordered the evacuation of 275,000 residents of Hampton Roads (Zone A). The storm has now turned south, so the brunt of the impacts will be felt in North and South Carolina. Virginia remains poised to assist and offer aid to the Carolinas as needed.
CALLING ALL INTERNS!
Senator Jeremy McPike’s office is looking for hardworking and creative interns in either high school or college to assist with political, legislative, and communications tasks through the summer of 2018.
Some assignments may require independent work that can be done from home, but most will occur at meeting locations in the Prince William or Manassas area.
Responsibilities include, but not limited to:
Here is a listing of some of our legislative accomplishments, organized by topic, from this past General Assembly session.
We finally have a budget! Moments ago, the Senate passed a two-year state budget with Medicaid Expansion and significant investment in public education.
Join me for one of two additional post session town halls. I have scheduled one on the western and one on the eastern side of the 29th Senate District. I will give updates and answer questions on legislative session, budget negotiations, Medicaid expansion, and more.
The General Assembly is working feverishly to finish the business of the Commonwealth so we can adjourn “sine die” today. Yet, there is still much work to be done. The House and Senate still have not agreed upon a biennial budget, so the General Assembly will have to go into Special Session and return in the coming weeks to negotiate a deal.
Greetings from Richmond! It is hard to believe March is already here. Since there is only one more week in the 2018 legislative session, the General Assembly is working diligently to complete the committee dockets. Here are some highlights from this week:
Greetings from Richmond! This was a busy and stressful week, but one bright spot was the many wonderful young people visiting the Capitol. I enjoyed chatting with the Student Leadership Council from the Human Rights Commission, Cub Pack 108 from Dale City, and students from Beville Middle School. I also caught one of our Recess Moms in committee, as she was there advocating for more recess for our children in elementary school.
