Delegate Rick Morris

Delegate Rick Morris

On January 11, 2012 I was honored to take my oath of office. It was truly a privilege to officially become the voice of the citizens of the 64th District on the floor of the House of Delegates. It is a moment I will never forget. During the opening ceremony, Speaker Bill Howell announced Members' committee assignments for the 2012 session, appointing me to the Committee on Courts of Justice, the Militia, Police & Public Safety Committee and the Committee on Counties, Cities and Towns. I am very pleased with my committee assignments.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Delegate.

pass a clean budget-2014.png

Dear Friend,

The General Assembly is set to adjourn Saturday, but it doesn't look like we will finish the state budget.

Governor Terry McAuliffe and General Assembly Democrats are demanding that we expand ObamaCare in Virginia before they will agree to pass a budget.

This is wrong. Virginia's budget is not a bargaining chip. Regardless of how you feel about ObamaCare, holding hostage funding for our schools, teachers, police officers, firefighters and local governments is wrong. Threatening a state government shutdown if you don't get what you want is not the Virginia way.

Click here to sign a petition telling Terry McAuliffe to drop his demands for ObamaCare and let Virginia pass a clean budget.

I do not support expanding ObamaCare in Virginia. Simply put, Medicaid needs significant reform and I am not sure the federal government will keep its commitment to indefinitely pay 90% of the cost for ObamaCare's Medicaid expansion.

But I recognize that some Virginians, including Governor McAuliffe might disagree with me on that. That's why I am willing to continue the debate. I have urged Governor McAuliffe to pass a clean budget and then we can debate ObamaCare in a special session.

He won't compromise.

That's why he needs to hear from you. Please, sign this petition asking Governor McAuliffe to pass a clean budget.
