The General Assembly last week passed the halfway point of the session. Each chamber finished work on its own bills and took up the ones the other had passed. It is the perfect time to check in on our local lawmakers and their priorities.
“Local” might be misleading. The districts the assembly adopted last year chopped up the New River Valley, and some of the region’s representatives do not even live here as a result.
