Virginia has repealed the ultrasound requirement before an abortion, as well as the 24-hour waiting period. Northam signed this bill yesterday.

Virginia also just banned housing & employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation & gender identity.
Virginia has also now adopted automatic voter registration. When Northam signed, made VA 17th state with such a law.

This is the first session with a Dem majority in decades, & we're waiting on fate of a number of other major bills in coming hours. More here as news comes in.
NEW: Virginia will no longer suspend driver's licenses for people who have unpaid court debt. This affects many hundreds of thousands people, cutting off their access to employment, transportation, and more.

Thsi is #SB1, which Northam signed today.

(Thread) A scientist’s view of the urgent need for @GavinNewsom to sign SB#1, written by @sentoniatkins.

Like every scientist concerned with preventing #extinction of #SFBay’s fish species, I want #endangeredspecies management to use only the best available science. 1/
@GavinNewsom @SenToniAtkins I supported then-Secretary @sallyjewell's call to review #endangeredspeciesact safeguards for the Bay’s imperiled fish species. Those reviews were necessary bc endangered fish continued to decline; Jewell wrote that she expected the review to lead to increased protections. 2/
@GavinNewsom @SenToniAtkins @sallyjewell Then science-denialists in the Trump Administration manipulated the scientific process used to develop @NOAAFisheries scientific review and tried to bury the best available science. latimes.com/environment/st…

(Thread) Last year, when I worked on @FresnoBee community engagement project about Fresno’s dividing line, #CrossingTheLine, I wasn’t expecting the community response. It was clear: something is happening in Fresno. Something is changing. 1/

Then the November election happened. And the @CityofFresno council suddenly looked a lot different. Leading up to that, I attended forums held by @FresnoBHC, @FaithInFresno, @LCJandA, @cncedfund, @HIPcalifornia. 2/
And let’s not forget Measure P. Even though it didn’t technically pass (that’s being argued in court), it was easily the most controversial election issue in Fresno’s election. An example of issue vs candidate politics. 3/
