Senator Saslaw's Blog

 In March of 2010, Congress passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. ACA as it has come to be known was to be the signature initiative of the President and many long serving elected officials. The measure has been debated for decades with its final passage coming after countless hours of deliberation and many compromises. You may recall that while the ink was still drying on the signed bill, many states filed suit to stop its implementation. In fact, Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli was the first to the Courthouse and did not participate in the states' class action suit.

 It is summer in Northern Virginia. Along with the heat and humidity comes the we thunderstorms, which seem to be an every couple of days occurrence in our region. Mother Nature appears to be testing our mettle. Although it may seem interminable at the time when there is a power outage, utility workers strive to restore power as quickly as possible. I'd like to thank the men and women that work tirelessly through the heat and hazards to get all of us back on line.
