    Virginia lawmakers may consider the Tebow bill connected to pro football quarterback Tim Tebow. The bill would allow thousands of home-school students to play sports at their local high schools. That is what Tebow was allowed to do while he grew up in Florida.

    The Virginia Senate voted to eliminate the prohibition for purchases of one handgun over a 30-day period. Read the bill in its entirety (sb323)http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?121+ful+SB323

    Legislators from across the Commonwealth of Virginia have converged on Virginia’s General Assembly for the next three months. Lawmakers will introduce bills that will need votes from both the Senate and House of Delegates.

    At issue, the state’s proposed budget by Governor Bob McDonnell for FY-13 through FY-14; Virginia’s Retirement System, Education cuts vs increases; Health insurance benefits affordability; unemployment benefits extensions; economic development and restorative justice, to name a few.

    What are the chief responsibilities of the Virginia General Assembly? To represent citizens in the formulation of public policy, enact laws of the Commonwealth, approve the budget, levy taxes, elect judges and confirm appointments by the Governor.
