VCC tracks legislators’ votes on key issues

The Virginia Catholic Conference, representing the dioceses of Arlington and Richmond, recently published charts showing local legislators' votes on issues considered during the 2016 General Assembly session Jan. 13-March 11.

Of the 2,100 bills considered by the General Assembly, the VCC took formal positions on more than 100 bills and budget amendments. Among those bills was VCC-supported legislation to defund Planned Parenthood and protect the rights of religious organizations and clergy, as well as VCC-opposed legislation to expand the use of the electric chair in death penalty cases.
