from the desk of SENATOR DICK BLACK

AG's Opinion: Regional taxes and Medicaid expansion are unlawful.

I voted no to the largest tax increase in Virginia history. Digging deeper into taxpayers' pockets isn't the answer. The Northern Virginia region shouldn't bear a higher burden than the rest of the state.  The Attorney General agreed with my position that the regional taxes are unlawful. See General Cuccinelli's opinion here.

I strongly opposed Medicaid expansion. I argued that the General Assembly's delegation of spending decisions to a "Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission" was unconstitutional.  Attorney General Cuccinelli agreed.  See his opinion here.

Thanks to my longtime colleague, Delegate Bob Marshall, for requesting official opinions from the Attorney General.

If you have any questions about my voting record, feel free to contact my office. You can reach us via mail at PO Box 3026, Leesburg, VA 20177, or give us a call at 703-468-1342. If I can be of assistance, or you wish to find out more about issues of concern to you, please e-mail me at
