RICHMOND, VA – Delegate Israel O'Quinn (R-5th) released the statement below following action taken by the Senate Finance Committee today:
"After passing HB 593 in the House of Delegates by a margin of 92-6, it was disappointing to see the bill caught-up in the partisan gamesmanship that seems to have embroiled the Senate over the past few weeks.  It is also unfortunate that all of the hard work put forth by Bristol and Washington County seems to have gone for naught.  I have never seen the City and County work together more closely and in harmony than they did on this project and I commend them for that."
