HR 1215 – Congressman Goodlatte is putting corporations over people AND taking away state’s rights. Don’t let him.




All –

Much of my last two weeks has been spent researching a recent Bill that my Congressman Bob Goodlatte drafted and presented to the House Judiciary Committee in late February. 


The Bill HR1215 – Protecting Access to Care Act 2017 (ironic name) would have a severe and negative impact on Virginians. 

Please take 15 minutes to listen to my recent podcast on the Bill. Link is below.
