  • “When I evaluate legislation, I apply a simple test. If it makes our Commonwealth work better for the people who live here, I sign it. If it doesn’t, I amend it or I veto it,” said Governor Northam. “I am proud of the bipartisan work we have done this session to solve real problems our families and businesses are facing. We may not always agree on every policy issue, but I want to thank the men and women of the General Assembly for working with my team and me for the good of our Commonwealth. We have made great progress so far this year, and we have an opportunity to build on that record by passing a budget that expands health coverage to people who need it and invests those savings into priorities like education and public safety. I look forward to completing that important work when the General Assembly returns to Richmond this week.”
