This isn't the action of "an outsider" - it's a act of someone who doesn't understand that in American bicameral legislatures, the House & Senate write the budget & THEN the Gov gets to make edits - Session costs taxpayers $40K/day and we don't take orders pic.twitter.com/TDNJrokMT9

It looked like Virginia was going to align itself w/ a federal law that makes it a crime to file off a gun's serial number.

Republicans raised concerns people could get in trouble by slipping in the woods and scratching their gun on a rock.

Youngkin's new education department has scrapped dozens of resources for schools related to equity and culturally responsive and inclusive teaching. The move is part of Youngkin's executive order taking aim at "divisive concepts" and "Critical Race Theory."doe.virginia.gov/statistics_rep鈥
Replying to @MelLeonor_
The document laying out what was scrapped offers the clearest look at what conservatives mean when they call for banning CRT, an academic concept. For example, they took issue with the line: 鈥淲hite People benefit from racism, regardless of intentions.鈥

Replying to @MelLeonor_
The Wheeler politics aside, these folks expiring creates two issues: -Some boards could be left without quorums unless Youngkin immediately fills them. -Youngkin had some trouble staffing up his administration. It's a lot of people for any admin. Northam had 3 staffers on this.

Fallout from @VASenateDems refusing to confirm Andrew Wheeler is growing.

House and Senate are now trading threats about not confirming any appointments, including hundreds of old ones from Northam and the rest of Youngkin's

Absolutely! He wasn鈥檛 any more likely than Youngkin to invite us to caucus breakfasts.
Replying to @BPaves @lowkell
But they were not nearly as likely to advertise closed press events. The best sense of who came in and out of the mansion was to foia the visitor logs.

In reply to @MelLeonor_
You learn something every day: Senators - even Democrats who鈥檝e opposed @GovernorVA in mask debate - say if emergency clause is affixed by gov as amendment, 4/5s rule doesn鈥檛 apply. Simple majority does it in Senate. House still requires 4/5s vote.
Replying to @RTDSchapiro @BradKutner and 2 others
Doesn't apply in the House either, according to Nardo, Dem parliamentarian, and admin. Filler-Corn/Dems left it out of rules in 2020, and Gilbert/GOP did not add it back in this session.
 
In reply to @BradKutner
The 4/5s provision is set in the constitution. That鈥檚 80 votes in the House, 32 in the Senate. Those thresholds don鈥檛 change just b/c a governor seeks an emergency clause.
Replying to @RTDSchapiro @BradKutner and 1 otherfalse
There鈥檚 consensus between the admin, clerks and House Dems that GY just needs a simple majority. My understanding is that the section that rules is Article 5, Section 6 of the constitution. The House has, through its rules, required a higher threshold but not in 2021 or now.

Kids can鈥檛 wait any longer. The science finally needs to be followed. The moment I receive SB 739, which now rescinds statewide mask mandates in schools, a special House Education Committee meeting will be convened to get it to the Governor for his immediate action.
