Virginia Beach, VA, March 21, 2011 - In the final days of the 2011 General Assembly Session, Senator Jeff McWaters(R-Virginia Beach) and Senator George Barker(D-Alexandria) coordinated a bi-partisan majority to pass SB 1049. The bill requires all state contractors in Virginia, with over 50 employees or state contracts over $50,000, to participate in the federal E-Verify system by December 1, 2013. It is a significant step forward from a similar bill passed last year, HB 737(2010), which requires all state agencies to use E-Verify by December 1, 2012.

After two months in Richmond, it is good to be home.  I look forward to meeting with organizations to talk about session and how it might affect those in the area.  Feel free to email me if you want for me to speak with your group.  I hear many questions about our time during Session. Today I will be talking about Redistricting and the affects that Redistricting will have on you and your family.
