Richmond, VA – The Virginia Legislative Black Caucus sent the attached letter to Governor Ralph Northam ahead of the Governor’s Action Deadline. While the Governor and his team review legislation, the VLBC calls on the Governor to refrain from delaying effective dates on legislation that will support our essential workers (like raising the minimum wage without further delay), promote environmental justice, and retain equity-focused measures in the Commonwealth’s budget.
