VCC publishes legislators’ scorecard

The Virginia Catholic Conference, representing the dioceses of Arlington and Richmond, recently published charts of local legislators' votes on key issues debated during the 2014 General Assembly session Jan. 14-Feb. 27.

Advocacy by the VCC was instrumental in the defeat of a secretive execution drug proposal and in the passage of measures to fight sex trafficking, protect religious speech and compensate victims of a forced-sterilization program that once operated in Virginia.

During the session, the VCC took formal positions on 87 bills and eight budget amendments. The charts record seven Senate floor and committee votes and three House floor votes.
