  • Great Family Foundation OP ED: Lawmakers should protect family values

    01/04/2012 6:25:37 AM PST · by Gopher Broke · 1 replies
    When the General Assembly returns to town all eyes focus on the state budget. Despite media-driven perceptions that the legislature obsesses over "controversial" social issues, economic issues dominate every legislative session, and 2012 will be no exception. Given the new Senate configuration, however, members will be expected to multitask and address other issues that were on the minds of many Virginians when they voted in November. Representing tens of thousands of those voters, The Family Foundation will have several legislative priorities we hope will find success. The first indicator of whether change has come to the state Senate will occur...

    A constitutional amendment that would ban same-sex marriages in Virginia has strong support among state voters, according to a new poll. Fifty-six percent said that they will vote for the amendment this fall, 38 percent said they will oppose it, according to a survey completed last week by Mason-Dixon Polling & Research Inc. of Washington, D.C. The company interviewed 625 registered voters who said they intend to participate in the Nov. 7 election, when the marriage amendment will appear on state ballots. The Virginia vote appears largely to be divided along partisan lines. Eighty-two percent of Republicans said they support...

    Another hectic week in the General Assembly is completed, and several important pro-family pieces of legislation are moving through the process. These bills will now move onto the Senate side as crossover approaches next week. At some point during the Senate debate we will need concerned citizens to contact their Senators to express support for the following bills. Stay tuned for further details. Student Survey Bill Delegate Tim Hugo's (R-40, Centreville) HB 1242 passed the House of Delegates this week by a vote of 93-4. This is legislation that will forbid school boards from surveying school children under 9th grade...

    WAVY (TV 10) Portsmouth, VA ^ | January 31, 2006 | Dionne Walker
    (AP) - The exact role of gay-straight student groups in Virginia schools depends on who you ask. According to Arlington Del. Adam Ebbin, the after-school groups offer a safe space where gay youths can seek comfort. But Harrisonburg Del. Matthew Lohr argues too many of these groups are just promoting sexual activity. They faced off Monday as the House of Delegates debated a bill that would empower local school boards to disband groups seen as encouraging teen promiscuity. Lohr's House Bill 1308 would authorize school boards to prohibit the use of school facilities by any student club that promotes sexual...

    For several years, the Senate Education and Health committee has been a killing ground for pro-life and pro-family legislation. Notorious for disrespecting pro-family advocates testifying before the committee and leading the killing of bills, Chairman Russ Potts (R-27, Winchester) has become the poster child for some Senate Republican's anti-family agenda. Now, you can have a say in what happens with that committee! Next week, the Senate leadership will have to make several decisions regarding seats on the Ed and Health committee, including that of Chairman Potts. Many pro-family Senators are demanding that Potts be removed from the committee after having...

    RICHMOND, Va. -- Social conservatives will continue to push their agenda in the 2006 General Assembly despite losses by two of their favorite legislators in the fall elections, activists and lawmakers say. The defeats of Republican Dels. Dick Black of Loudoun County and Brad Marrs of Chesterfield County were viewed by some as evidence that Virginians are tired of legislators focusing on hot-button social issues instead of core services such as public education and transportation. "The voters of Virginia have spoken, and it would behoove the legislators to listen to those voters and address more pressing statewide issues," said Ben...

GLSEN suggests making the event a fun time with games, speakers,...
