From Sen. Scott Surovell (D-Fairfax/Prince William County):

This afternoon, the Virginia Senate Democrats announced its Police Reform and Criminal Justice Equity Plan for the Special Session likely to take place this August. The public has been clear that the time for studies is over and the time for action is now and we have a list of prove measures adopted in other states or already in place in other Virginia localities that will make a big difference. Thank you to our Caucus Chairman Mamie Locke for asking me to lead our subcommittee, thank you to our Caucus for the ideas that led to this list and thank you to the other CJR Ad Hoc Subcommittee members who helped put this together – Senator L Louise Lucas, Senator Jennifer McClellan, Senator Creigh Deeds, Senator Jennifer Barton Boysko, and Senator Joe Morrissey.
