Security Funds Distribute Money To 87th District Schools

Ramadan helped secure $6 million for school security

Dulles, VA | September 26th, 2014 – Delegates David I. Ramadan (R-Loudoun) was the chief co-sponsor during the 2013 General Assembly Legislative Session of the School Security Infrastructure Improvement Fund and the Local School Safety Fund (HB2343). These funds allocate $6 million per year for schools across Virginia to upgrade their security with hallway cameras, buzz-in systems, automatic locks on classroom doors, and more.

Governor McAuliffe announced the distribution of the $6 million from the funds on Thursday, and that Loudoun County Schools will receive $33,989, and Prince William County Schools will be receiving $24,057. Some of that money will go directly to schools right here in the 87th District.

“It is important that we continue to ensure a safe learning environment for children in our schools,” said Delegate Ramadan on Friday morning. “I was proud to work on HB2343 which created these funds. This will allow our schools to get the protective equipment they need.”

The criteria for making the awards — developed by the Virginia Department of Education and the state Department of Criminal Justice Services — gave priority to schools most in need of modern security equipment, schools with relatively high numbers of offenses, and schools with equipment needs identified by a school security audit.

Virginia Business Development Caucus Holds Northern Virginia Townhall

Business owners from five counties gather to discuss business legislation

 Dulles, VA | September 24th2014 – Delegates David I. Ramadan (R-Loudoun), Chris Head (R-Botetourt), Michael Webert (R-Fauquier), Jim Lemunyon (R-Fairfax), Mark Keam (D-Fairfax) and former delegate Mike Watson of Williamsburg were all present to listen to more than 50 business owners and Chamber of Commerce representatives gathered in Chantilly on Tuesday, September 23rd . Issues discussed included tax cuts, workman’s comp, state regulations, and other matters that impact businesses small and large across the state.

“It was a great turnout. This was our 15th BDC meeting since the creation of the caucus,” said Delegate Ramadan. “Every time we hold one of these, some of the same issues come up like the BPOL tax, as well as new issues that we had not yet considered. I look forward to continuing the great work of the BDC in helping to keep Virginia one of the most business-friendly states in the nation.”

The Business Development Caucus was founded by business owners who serve in the General Assembly. It’s mission is to introduce and shepherd legislation that promotes entrepreneurship and job growth in the Commonwealth and to monitor and oppose legislation that is contrary to the goals of the caucus. Membership is open to members of the Virginia General Assembly who are or have been business owners, entrepreneurs or employers who regularly make a payroll, and those who wish to promote the business owner as the key player in economic recovery and long term economic viability. With the information gathered from these meetings with business owners, 29 pieces of legislation have been introduced by members of the caucus to address business issues – 14 of which have now been signed into law.
