Senate pops proposal to ban balloon releases


The Senate has rejected a bill to ban the intentional release of balloons into the atmosphere, which environmentalists say kill turtles, sea birds and other marine animals.

The bill – a stark contrast to current law, which allows for 50 balloons to be released per person per hour – failed on a 16-21 vote Friday.

Sen. Jeffrey McWaters, R-Virginia Beach, was the sponsor of Senate Bill 1107. He cited a report by the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality that said balloon debris in waterways is one of the biggest problems facing marine systems. Many balloons fall into the ocean and are ingested by animals, often causing death. > Read more.

As overdose deaths rise statewide, lawmakers in the House and Senate have advanced three bills that would expand access to naloxone across Virginia. > Read more.
