GOP Pre-files Bills That McAuliffe Vetoed

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Republican lawmakers are set to try again on a trio of bills that Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe vetoed earlier this year.
    
GOP lawmakers announced they had pre-filed legislation on Monday, the first day to do so ahead of the 2017 General Assembly session.
    
The legislation includes a bill to allow school security officers to carry guns, a bill to clarify that subscription-based primary care service is not insurance and a bill to limit the influence of labor unions on small business franchises.
    
Democrats Sen. Adam Ebbin and Del. Mark Sickles, both openly gay, also pre-filed legislation Monday to repeal Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage, a ban overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court last year.
