In the Works rulings on the Macker-Meter

Reform Standards of Learning tests

“As governor, I'm going to get right down and start to work to make sure I stop it, so no more of these women's health centers shut down in Virginia. You have my word on that.

 

Seek universal background checks for gun purchases

“As governor, I'm going to push for universal background checks for everyone."

 

Pay out gas royalties to landowners

"I will make it a priority to ensure that the millions of dollars in gas royalties currently sitting in escrow are paid out to the landowners who are owed that money."
