As State Senator Scott Surovell notes, President Trump’s executive order “that freezes the hiring of federal employees as well as pay raises” amounts to “attacks on agencies like the FBI, the CIA, ICE…agencies that do things to keep our country safe.” Sen. Surovell reminds everyone that Trump vowed to reward states that voted for him and punish those that voted against him; and “now, you know what, Virginians are going to pay the price, and to me it’s disgusting…when this revenue goes down…it’s going to be bad for our teachers, our police, our children, our college students and our citizens.”
