Sports Hall of Fame Killed in Senate Finance – 15-0!

I was not there but the news is great:

SB 28 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame; created, report.

02/11/16  Senate: Passed by indefinitely in Finance (15-Y 0-N)


YEAS–Norment, Hanger, Howell, Saslaw, Lucas, Newman, Ruff, Wagner, McDougle, Vogel, Carrico, Alexander, Obenshain, Barker, Dunnavant–15.

NAYS–0.

ABSTENTIONS–0.

This is a great victory over the continuing attempt to subsidize private events and organizations with taxpayer dollars.  But these ideas will continue – until it is clear the people will not stand for it.

I again thank Senator McDougle for his leadership on this.  Let’s thank him and the others, too.
