Democrats call for Appropriations Committee to hold regional public hearings

Today, the House Democratic leaders, Delegates Frank Hall and Brian Moran released the following statement regarding the Appropriations Committee briefing on the Republican transportation plan.

“After today’s briefing before the House Appropriations Committee on the Republican transportation plan, we believe many questions remain unanswered. We believe there should be a bipartisan, robust discussion on this important proposal and the people of Virginia deserve to have their voice heard.

Therefore, we are calling on the House Appropriations Committee to hold regional public hearings to answer the people of Virginia’s questions regarding this important legislation.

The test of this proposal should not only be that it can pass the House of Delegates but that it creates a real transportation solution for the people of Virginia.

This bill makes significant changes in Virginia’s budget and it deserves more than a cursory hearing – it deserves public debate.”
