Republicans Defeat Democratic Push for Stricter Gun Laws

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A Virginia state Senate panel has defeated a Democratic push for stricter gun laws. A Republican-led panel voted Monday to block legislation that would allow cities and counties to ban firearms at certain public events. The bill came in response to a violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville last summer where several participants were heavily armed. Former Gov. Terry McAuliffe enacted similar rules on a temporary basis last November. The panel also voted down a bill to expand mandatory background checks on gun buyers. The vote comes two days after newly sworn-in Gov. Ralph Northam, a...

Bill to Increase Felony Minimum to $500 Moving Through Senate

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A bill designed to soften penalties in Virginia for stealing smaller dollar items is moving through the state Senate.

Most other states have raised the dollar minimum for felony charges to keep pace with inflation. The Republican-led committee voted to increase the threshold but rejected a push by newly sworn-in Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam to raise the...

RICHMOND, Va  According to an article on, On his last day in office,  Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe says the Commonwealth’s tourism industry has grown by $2.2 billion since he took office. Tourism has been a big part of McAuliffe’s efforts to build a “new Virginia economy” since he was elected in 2013. “Virginia’s tourism industry is a critical component of the new Virginia economy, providing jobs for our citizens and funneling millions of dollars back into our communities,” McAuliffe said in a statement Thursday. McAuliffe’s office said the governor has awarded more than $3.3 million in tourism grants across the Commonwealth. The McAuliffe has also sought to boost Virginia’s wine and craft beer industries over the past four years. Across the Commonwealth, there are now 250 craft breweries, more than 280 wineries and over 20 cideries. McAuliffe said Thursday that travelers spent nearly $65 million per day in Virginia. The industry as a whole saw an annual growth rate of 3.3 percent. This growth had impacts in areas including employment and even entertainment — with films and  TV shows being filmed  in the Commonwealth. According to McAuliffe’s office, people working in tourism earned $5.6 billion in payroll income — a 5.4 percent increase over 2015. There was a total of $23.7 billion in revenue from tourism along in...
