Sports Hall of Fame Killed in Senate Finance – 15-0!

I was not there but the news is great:

SB 28 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame; created, report.

02/11/16  Senate: Passed by indefinitely in Finance (15-Y 0-N)

YEAS–Norment, Hanger, Howell, Saslaw, Lucas, Newman, Ruff, Wagner, McDougle, Vogel, Carrico, Alexander, Obenshain, Barker, Dunnavant–15.



This is a great victory over the continuing attempt to subsidize private events and organizations with taxpayer dollars.  But these ideas will continue – until it is clear the people will not stand for it.

I again thank Senator McDougle for his leadership on this.  Let’s thank him and the others, too.

    Credit the Patriot movement for killing this measure. Prior to 2010 this would have sailed through the GA.

    Our success and victories are few and far between, and often times misunderstood. The publics tolerance for this nonsense, best symbolized at the moment by the anti-establishment mood stopped this in it’s tracks for only one reason………..elected officials are feeling the heat.

    Let’s turn the burners on high.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
