Week 3 of the 2018 General Assembly is now in the books. Already the House has been hard at work and has passed several bills that provide practical solutions to everyday issues. I am proud of the hard work my colleagues have done to address adoption reform, improve our education system, and fight the opioid crisis.
We’re also excited to share with you all a major win for our community this week! Many of you know that the Goochland Drive-in Theater has been attempting to gain access to the blue highway attraction sign for 8 years on I-64. When they sought out help from our office, we brought together a team of people from VDOT and a number of other agencies. After discussion, they agreed to grant the GDIT an exemption. They have submitted their application and the sign will be up on I-64 this spring.
Once again, this week saw a number of visitors to our office downtown. Thank you to all of the constituents and advocacy groups who took the time to come and talk with us about a number of important issues. We encourage all of our constituents to take a trip during session and to keep up with us by following our Facebook and Twitter for updates. I look forward to another exciting week starting on Monday.
