1. Law and Order Begins Return to VA

Virginia’s new Attorney General Jason Miyares fired 30 staff members and announced investigations into the Virginia Parole Board and Loudoun County Schools within hours of being sworn into office.

Mr. Miyares was sworn in as Virginia’s Attorney General on Saturday and he’s already cleaning house.

“One of the reasons Virginians get so fed up with government is the lack of transparency – and that’s a big issue here,” Miyares wrote. “The Virginia Parole Board broke the law when they let out murders, rapists, and cop killers early on their sentences without notifying the victims. Loudoun Country Public Schools covered up a sexual assault on school grounds for political gain, leading to an additional assault of a young girl.”

Virginia State Senator Louise Lucas claimed Miyares fired the entire Civil Rights division, however the AG’s spokesperson said only two staffers from that division were let go on Saturday.

Youngkin Highlights 100,000 Virginia Jobs Added Since January​


“With 100,000 jobs added since January, we are well ahead of pace to reach our goal of 400,000 jobs during my term. However, the slowdown in monthly job creation and the lower level of job participation have my full attention. We will continue the critical work to return more Virginians to the workforce and will double-down on policies that make Virginia attractive for job growth and business investment,” Youngkin said. “We remain laser-focused on our mission to make Virginia the best place to live, work and raise a family.”


As proof of his success compared to his two Democratic predecessors, Youngkin cited that figure in remarks to the joint money committees of the General Assembly in a speech Friday.


“In the eight years before our partnership began, Virginia was plainly falling behind. We were 47th in the country for job recovery coming out of the pandemic. Our economy had mustered growth of less than 1 percent. In that eight-year period, we were losing jobs to states like Florida and Georgia, Texas, Tennessee, and North Carolina,” Youngkin said in his speech. “Since January through June, we’ve been top 15 in the country for job recovery[…].”

Virginia Republicans and Governor Glenn Youngkin Reverse Planned Release of Violent Criminals Democrats Passed in 2020 When They Had Full Control of Virginia Legislature


The 2020 law had a delayed effective date of July 1, 2022, so prison officials would have time to calculate new release dates. And the change in credits applied retroactively, meaning the Department of Corrections was preparing for an initial surge of releases when it took effect.

Under the 2020 law, violent offenses were not eligible for the expanded credit. But if inmates had a combined sentence with both a violent conviction and a lower-tier one, they could potentially shave some time off the sentence they were given for the nonviolent offense.

Multiple attempts to repeal the law failed, but the last-minute budget amendment from Youngkin was approved by the General Assembly on June 17. He signed the budget bill days later.

During a debate in the state Senate over the amendment, Republicans suggested the law went further than initially intended in allowing inmates with violent convictions to reduce any portion of their sentence, even for the separate, lesser convictions.

“Because of the way this was drafted, this is a loophole we should close,” said Republican Sen. Mark Obenshain. He read from a list of the most serious offenses committed by the inmates among the first batch of early releases, and insisted that some of those people would go on to offend again.

Youngkin to reimburse businesses fined for violating 'draconian' COVID shutdown rules​


Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin is working to end fines and fees and develop a reimbursement process for businesses who were "unjustly" subjected to COVID-19 pandemic shutdown violations.

The GOP governor issued an executive order Tuesday rolling back strict COVID enforcement policies enacted by the previous Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam. Youngkin, a political newcomer, flipped a typically blue state red in 2021 by running on pro-parent and anti-Biden administration policies, including pandemic response.

The new order will direct his state government agencies to report the fines and fees businesses throughout the state were forced to pay during the shutdown. The governor also tapped the state finance secretary to create a reimbursement procedure for penalized businesses.

Youngkin said further enforcement action against businesses will be halted...

"The fact that businesses are still dealing with COVID-19 related penalties and fines is infuriating," Youngkin said...



That's my governor! What a pleasant change from the blackface tyrant!

What are you talking about? Recreational pot has been legal in VA since July 2021. People can grow their own.

If you are referring to the proposed $25 fine for possession of more than two ounces, I LOL at you.
