Welcome to my website!  I was elected to represent the 95th District in the Virginia House of Delegates (parts of Newport News and parts of Hampton).  I am honored to serve the citizens and help make the Peninsula an even better place to live, learn, work, play, and raise a family.

The 2019 General Assembly Legislative Session began at noon on Wednesday, January 9, 2019.  Odd numbered years are "short sessions" and we met for 46 calendar days (one more day than usual).  During Session, all 100 members of the Virginia House of Delegates met every Monday-Friday at noon. You can watch each session here.

Our committee meetings were held at various times during the week. Find our committee video here. Can't remember how a bill becomes a law, no problem! Get your refresher here.

We adjourned sine die on February 24, 2019. And then our next step in the legislative process was Reconvened (Veto) Session on April 3, 2019. There the Senators and Delegates reacted to the Governor's vetoes and amendments to bills that had been passed.

Next up in the process was the laws becoming effective on July 1st.

More recently, the General Assembly has been called back for Special Session to begin on July 9, 2019.  The intent was for the legislature to discuss gun violence prevention measures but the parameters of the session will be guided by the resolution which has not yet been approved.  Stay tuned as this continues to develop.  Click here to watch the House video from Special Session!

Delegate Marcia "Cia" Price, 

Virginia House of Delegates, District 95

"Be the change. Do the work."

Congressman Bobby Scott holds gun violence prevention round table discussion

At today’s round table discussion Congressman Bobby Scott laid the foundation for leaders in the community to speak about what should change for gun prevention.
Delegate Marcia Price says we can’t do that without hearing from every perspective
“It is important to hear from all angles of it, and I know that I’ve talked with families that have been victims of gun violence, I’ve talked with experts,” said Price
But the one perspective not everyone expected was from a Newport News man, James Braxton

“I’m speaking on behalf of someone who has contributed to gun violence in my community. Some of these fights and these shootings that happened back in the day — that was us,” explained Braxton.
He now works with a group called RISE for Youth, and made it his mission for his voice to be heard today.
“If you want to understand the solutions to gun violence, first of all you have to have people on the panel that have contributed to gun violence. Unless you talk to us and ask why we picked up that gun and fired it, you’re not going to know,” Braxton said.
The panel comprised of law enforcement, delegates and social leaders talked about mental health, background checks, previous convictions and domestic violence, but even Price said on Monday she saw there is always room at the table.
“We were called out on not having involved some of the people that have previously committed crimes with guns and I look forward to have already reached out so that we can hear some of those voices,” Price said.
Scott says everything they heard today they’ve heard before it is just a matter of moving forward with progress on things like background checks and assault weapon bans.
