Charlottesville–Right Now: General Assembly Update with Mark Bergman and Shaun Kenney

Mark Bergman, a member of the Democratic Party of Virginia, and Shaun Kenney with the Republican Party of Virginia, regularly join Coy Barefoot on Charlottesville–Right Now! for an update on action in the General Assembly. First up in the discussion was the Transportation Compromise – should part of the budget surplus be spent on improving Virginia’s roadways? Next up, Bergman and Kenney discuss two controversial bills: HB2648, which would make abortions a felony; and HB2797, attempting to guarantee “the right to enjoyment of life” for pre-born human beings.
Both also comment on Ed Gillespie’s speech during his recent visit to the University of Virginia’s Miller Center. Some conversations Gillespie’s comments sparked dealt with financial contributions to campaigns and “Gotcha Politics” in reference to the Democratic website Assembly Access.
