Electric school buses will soon be on the roads in Virginia, carrying children and reducing
emissions, as Dominion Energy moves forward with one of the nation’s largest, electric
school bus deployments. Designed to reduce toxic fumes and maintenance costs,

Governor's public message, following gun rights rally
“We are all thankful that today passed without incident. The (policing) teams successfully de-escalated
what could have been a volatile situation. This resulted from weeks of planning and extensive
cooperation among state, local and federal partners in Virginia and beyond. Virginia’s law
enforcement and first-responders demonstrated tremendous professionalism. Thousands of people
came to Richmond to make their voices heard. Today showed that when people disagree, they can
do so peacefully. The issues before us evoke strong emotions, and progress is often difficult. I will
continue to listen to the voices of Virginians, and I will continue to do everything in my power to
keep our Commonwealth safe.” - Virginia Governor Ralph Northam - January 20, 2020
