The October "Richmond Report" is now available on Falls Church News-Press. In this month's report, I discuss judicial nominations and then highlight some of the many initiatives underway to help Virginia become the best-educated state in the nation by 2030.

Clip: "I support need-based financial aid and staunchly advocate for higher education in general. This latest budget reflects those long-held priorities with roughly $120.6 million general fund of new initiative funding over the biennium for colleges and universities and other higher education entities and centers and $20 million for a new research initiative called Cyber-X with Virginia Tech serving as the lead institution.

The Cyber-X initiative will be housed here in Northern Virginia. There will be additional opportunities for today’s high school and college students to gain an education and work experiences in this area to prepare to take jobs."
