AFP: Criminal Justice Reform, Health Care and Education Are Top Priorities for Special Session

Aug 18, 2020 by AFP

RICHMOND, Va. – Americans for Prosperity-Virginia announced plans to engage on three key issues during the General Assembly’s special session. The grassroots group plans to mobilize activists across the commonwealth to encourage lawmakers to pass reforms in key areas including criminal justice reform, health care, and education. 

Americans for Prosperity-Virginia State Director JC Hernandez had this to say about the group’s priorities: 

“Lawmakers have many opportunities this session to tackle our commonwealth’s toughest challenges. We encourage them to start with criminal justice reform – specifically policing reform and ensuring our state provides second chances to Virginian’s who’ve earned them. We encourage them to make the temporary easing of regulations for telemedicine that were prompted by the pandemic – that improved care and saved lives –  permanent. Finally, we urge lawmakers to make our education system one that ensures every child has access to the education that fits their individual needs. We stand ready to work with all our lawmakers to ensure reforms that improve the lives of all Virginians make it to the Governor’s desk.”
