RICHMOND, Va. – Beginning July 1, Virginians will be able to buy a can of beer – not just a cup – at indoor and outdoor concession stands that are licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
That’s the effect of a bill that Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed into law on Monday. Senate Bill 1469 will add “single original metal cans” to the list of disposable containers that can be used for the sale of beer, wine and mixed alcoholic drinks.
The legislation, sponsored by Sen. Ben Chafin, R-Montgomery, will apply to concession stands at amphitheaters, stadiums, coliseums, convention centers and similar facilities, which currently must dispense alcoholic beverages in plastic or paper cups. (more…)
RICHMOND, Va. – Capping off a signature issue of the 2017 legislative session, Gov. Terry McAuliffe signed five bills Thursday to help arm the fight against opioid abuse and fatal overdoses in Virginia.
The bills address the crisis in various ways. They include SB 848 and HB 1453, which allow community organizations to dispense and train individuals to use naloxone, a drug that can treat an opioid overdose in emergency situations.
“We recognize that addiction is a disease, not a moral failing,” McAuliffe said. “Our proposals for this General Assembly session focused on preventing addiction and providing treatment for those who suffer from it.”
The governor also signed HB 2165, which will mandate all opioid prescriptions be transmitted to pharmacies electronically by 2020. It will also create a workgroup to study how to best implement the change. (more…)

MANASSAS, Va. — Rep. Barbara Comstock spoke today at the Rotary Club of Manassas.
We’re told the Republican representing Virginia’s 10th Congressional District discussed rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure, and about replacing Obamacare with a new GOP-backed plan.
Constituents for days have urged Comstock, and other GOP lawmakers to hold a town hall meeting about the health care issue. They’re using Indivisible Guide website, which touts itself as “a practical guide to resisting the Trump agenda” to organize their efforts.
Protestors stood outside the Rotary Club meeting, held at the Center for the Arts at the Candy Factory in Downtown Manassas, while Comstock spoke.
Potomac Local called Comstock’s office seeking a statement for this post but has yet to hear back. We’ll post any statement from Comstock’s office in this post when/if we receive it.
