RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC)- A push to crack down on corruption in charitable gaming is coming to a head in the General Assembly. A bipartisan group is pushing for reform and new leadership of an embroiled regulatory board.
In a letter sent on Monday, Jan 24., members of the Joint Subcommittee on Charitable Gaming asked House Speaker Todd Gilbert to take immediate action to clean up Virginia’s Charitable Gaming Board by replacing members he has the power to appoint. The letter, signed by Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania), Senator John Bell (D-Loudoun), Senator Adam Ebbin (D-Alexandria) and Delegate Paul Krizek (D-Fairfax), cited financial conflict of interest violations by members of the Board.
RICHMOND, Va (WRIC) — The Richmond School Board held an emergency meeting at 3 p.m. Sunday to hold a vote over whether they would take legal action against the office of Governor Glenn Youngkin in an effort to protect their ability to enforce a mask mandate in Richmond schools.
The 5-3 vote in favor of legal action means RPS will either take legal action against the governor themselves or join a lawsuit filed by Chesapeake City Public Schools which states that Youngkin’s executive order rescinding the statewide school mask mandate defies state law that lets school boards implement guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention “to the maximum extent practicable.”
RICHMOND, Va (WRIC) — In a post on his Twitter account at 3:15 Sunday, Mayor Levar Stoney announced he has tested positive for COVID-19.
In the tweet, Stoney says his symptoms are far milder than his COVID case in Jan. of 2021 since getting vaccinated and boosted, and he will be isolating for five days in accordance with CDC guidelines.
