Delegate Lopez's Statement Regarding Governor McDonnell Signing SB1 and HB9

0 Comment(s) | Posted |





“I am deeply disappointed that the Governor has signed such an unnecessary piece of legislation that will cost the Commonwealth over $500,000 and disenfranchise elderly and minority voters across the state. Rather than spending that money on a solution in search of a problem, we should be spending it on real problems such as fully funding our schools and investing in our transportation infrastructure. Make no mistake. This bill will suppress voting from the impoverished, the elderly, and those living on the margins. With over 3 million registered voters choosing to stay home and only 28% voter participation during the last election, we ought to be figuring out ways to make it easier for Virginians to have their voices heard.”
