During a recent engagement at the Rotary Club of Newport News, Virginia State Senator Danny Diggs called for enhanced bipartisan collaboration within the state legislature. Senator Diggs, known for his willingness to cross party lines, highlighted his diverse voting record, which includes an 80% alignment with his party but a notable 20% deviation in favor of meritorious bills from across the aisle. His legislative agenda is robust, featuring pivotal bills like the Cody Bill, which aims to protect children who fall outside the criteria for an Amber Alert. Additionally, Senator Diggs is advocating for the standardization of non-traditional high school credits statewide and striving to bolster public safety by restricting sex offenders from state parks, ensuring uniformity in all public spaces. Amidst discussions on the Virginia General Assembly’s budget and gun control legislation, with expectations of party-line votes and possible overrides of gubernatorial vetoes, the Assembly has opted to redo the budget completely, reflecting the dynamic nature of current legislative processes. Senator Diggs’ efforts underscore his commitment to pragmatic policy-making that prioritizes the welfare of Virginians, fostering a legislative environment conducive to both safety and educational advancements.
