Committee OKs nondiscrimination bill


By one vote, the Senate General Laws and Technology Committee has approved a bill that prohibits discrimination in public employment based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

The committee on Monday voted 8-7 for Senate Bill 785 after Sen. Jill Vogel of Winchester defected from her Republican colleagues and joined Democrats in supporting the measure.

SB 785 was introduced by Sen. Donald McEachin, D-Richmond, and co-sponsored by more than a dozen other Democrats. This is the sixth time McEachin has filed such legislation. > Read more.

College affordability bills now in Senate


After clearing the House of Delegates, two bills aimed at making college more affordable in Virginia have now moved to the Senate.

The bills, both sponsored by House Majority Leader Kirk Cox of Colonial Heights, received unanimous approval from delegates on Friday.

House Bill 1895 would give small and medium-sized public institutions of higher education in Virginia more flexibility in areas such as information technology, procurement and capital projects. HB 1897 would put a cap on the athletic fees that colleges and universities can charge students.

Capping athletic fees would generate meaningful cost savings for students and their families, Cox said. > Read more.
