This year, we are looking at legislation to expand privacy protections for Virginia driver privilege card holders (HB 2163), expand education equity by making all in-state tuition holders eligible for financial assistance (state grants/financial aid) at both public and private universities (HB 2123), and allow non-driver’s to receive a Virginia state identity card regardless of their immigration status (HB 2138), among other legislative initiatives.

 

WHEN:

Tuesday, January   26th h from 8:00am to 11:00am, and

Wednesday, January 27th from 8:00 to 10:00am

We will visit different legislators each day. The time could have minor changes according to the availability of the legislators
