RICHMOND, Va.: Delegate John J. Bell (D – Loudoun) has been endorsed and named a Reproductive Health Champion by NARAL Pro-Choice Virginia.

CHANTILLY, Va.: With the 2017 session of the Virginia General Assembly coming to a close, Delegate John Bell released the results from his 2017 survey and highlighted how he voted on the issues that his constituents were most concerned about.
This week, I wanted to share with you a tradition we have in the General Assembly that helps us recognize greatness in our districts, and therefore highlight the accomplishments of the Commonwealth. Commending resolutions help recognize the unique achievements in our district.
This past week was one of the busiest we have had during the 2017 session, with both Crossover Day and Budget Day taking up a lot of time and detailed attention from your legislature.
As I mentioned in my update last week, Crossover occurred on Tuesday, February 7 and was the last day that the House could consider bills that originated in the House. From Wednesday on, the House can only consider Senate bills, and vice versa.
As the General Assembly approaches crossover, my colleagues and I are considering more and more bills every day. Of the 2,495 bills that have been introduced this year, 652 have passed the House of Delegates; 1,686 are pending.
Crossover day is next Tuesday, and is the last day that each chamber can consider bills that originated in that chamber. After that day, the House may only consider Senate bills, and vice versa.
