HB 1916 passes the House

Del. Jeion Ward’s important HB 1916, which would require instruction on dating violence to be incorporated into family life education curriculum, passed the House of Delegates and moved on to the Senate this afternoon.

Disappointingly, 14 legislators voted against the measure – all males, all Republicans. Nine of them did the same during Monday’s committee vote.

Del. Ward spoke on HB 1916 during its second reading yesterday; you can hear her full speech here.
