HB2066, a library bill co-sponsored by Delegate Mark Keam and Senator Dave Marsden, will designate public libraries as essential services. This legislation is needed to strengthen the current Virginia Code in which libraries are deemed part of the provision for public education. It has been assigned to the Committee for General Laws. Subcommittee #2 will review the legislation Thursday, January 29, at 1 pm in House Room C. It's important that we have people testify in support of HB2066 from all over Virginia.
