In total, 19 House Democratic Caucus bills have been passed by both the House and Senate during the 2020 Special Session. House Democrats’ approved measures will provide COVID-19 relief, make improvements in policing and criminal justice, and build equity throughout the Commonwealth — as outlined in the House Democratic Caucus’ priorities at the start of the Special Session.  House Democratic Leadership released the following statements: “Today we are one step closer to completing our Special Session and delivering on our pledge to provide a strong response to COVID-19, as well as address police and criminal justice reform,” said Virginia Speaker of the House Eileen Filler-Corn. “I am proud of what the General Assembly has accomplished thus far — we will finish our work and fulfill our promise to Virginians.”  “This legislation is the result of hard work and collaboration among Democrats in both chambers; we share the goal of helping Virginians suffering from COVID-19, financial distress due to the pandemic, and racial inequalities and injustices,” said House Democratic Majority Leader Charniele Herring. “House Democrats seized the opportunity during Special Session to tackle both long-overdue problems and catastrophic new ones, to make Virginia a better place to live, work, and raise a family. We will continue to work together to address the suffering radiating throughout the Commonwealth, during the remainder of the Special Session and in 2021.” “The House Democratic Caucus listened to our constituents before the Special Session, and we acted. At a time when Virginians are facing crises related to health, the economy, and racial justice, we came together to hear input from experts, advocates, and citizens to legislate carefully and effectively,” said House Democratic Caucus Chair Rip Sullivan. “These are uncertain and unprecedented times, but Virginians can rely on House Democrats to work hard for all Virginians with every bill we pass and every dollar in our balanced budget.” Here is a summary of the House Democrats’ legislation passed by the General Assembly during Special Session:  COVID-19 Relief HB 5046 (Adams) Advancing innovations in telehealth.
