"During my eight years in the General Assembly, I've worked closely with NARAL to protect the right of Virginia women to make medical decisions about their own body, to ensure access to needed health services, and to prevent onerous regulations on reproductive healthcare providers," said Ebbin.
"Northern Virginians need a trusted, proven progressive leader in the State Senate. Adam Ebbin is that leader," said Herring, whose House district includes precincts also in the 30th Senate District. "In the Senate, Adam will continue to work to address our local transit needs. He will continue to fight for equality under the law for all Virginians. He will continue to stand up for a woman's right to choose. In short, he'll continue to be in the Senate what he's been in the House: our proven progressive champion."
"As a member of the House of Delegates, Adam Ebbin has been a tireless champion on behalf of our environment. For eight years, he has fought for greater use of clean energy and worked to protect the quality of our air and water," said Lisa Guthrie, the Executive Director of the Virginia LCV.
In the House, Ebbin passed a bill to establish a Solar Resource Loan Fund, designed to help homeowners offset the cost of installing solar panels (HB 2091). Ebbin has also introduced legislation (HB 2047) designed to reduce pollution from throwaway plastic grocery bags in Virginia's rivers and streams.
"Protecting our natural environment and ensuring that Virginians have clean air to breathe and clean water to drink is an essential responsibility of our state government. I am proud of my record of fighting alongside the Virginia League of Conservation Voters for a greener Virginia, and look forward to continuing that effort in the Virginia Senate," said Adam Ebbin.
So it's no surprise that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wants to overturn them.
"Sadly, it's no shock to learn that Bob Marshall has once again attacked the dignity of Virginia's LGBT population. That he would attack the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond for flying a flag that promotes equality, tolerance and acceptance tells us all we need to know about Delegate Marshall's priorities. Across the Commonwealth, LGBT Virginians, their friends and their families are celebrating this week as the start of a month where we express pride in who we are and what we have accomplished as a community. Despite the best efforts of those like Bob Marshall, it has gotten better for LGBT Virginians, and so long as I am in the General Assembly I will fight every day to ensure it continues to do so."
