"This along with the rest of the budget is the most progressive our Commonwealth has seen in its history, while at the same time maintaining the fiscal responsibility that allows Virginia to save nearly $2.2 billion and retain our ‘AAA’ bond rating. I am looking forward to supporting this budget on the House floor."
“Virginia currently ranks 49 out of 50 states regarding how difficult it is to vote. The passage of HB 201 is one very important step to breaking down barriers that Virginians face when trying to access the ballot box,” stated Delegate Ayala.
"So many women before me have paved the way for today’s ratification. I am so proud to stand on their shoulders as I voted to write gender equality into the U.S. Constitution. Today’s ratification is a monumental step in the right direction for equality for all in our country," stated Delegate Ayala.
