RICHMOND — Gov. Terry McAuliffe has signed into law a bill protecting Virginia National Guard chaplains from censorship — a measure similar to one he vetoed last year.

House, Senate approve sexual assault bills

February 12, 2015

The House and Senate passed nearly identical omnibus legislation Tuesday designed to hold sexual offenders on college campuses accountable. Both chambers approved scaled-back versions of mandatory reporting bills, which initially would have required faculty or staff members to report information on assaults directly to law enforcement.

As passed 97-3 by the House of Delegates and 38-0 by the Senate, the legislation instead establishes campus Title IX coordinators as the intermediaries for reporting. The compromise addresses concerns about victim confidentiality while conforming the proposals to U.S. Department of Education regulations that address how colleges respond to sex discrimination.

McAuliffe wants to reinstate Va. gun sale restrictions

December 15, 2014

ARLINGTON, Va. (WJLA) – During their final debate in the 2014 Virginia gubernatorial race, Ken Cuccinelli scoffed that his Democratic opponent had flunked a test of character – namely, that Terry McAuliffe received a grade of “F” from the National Rifle Association.

McAuliffe quick-fired a stunning rebuttal, more or less putting his election prospects where his mouth is. “I don’t CARE what grade I got from the NRA,” he said. Read More...
