RICHMOND, VA – Governor Youngkin issued an Executive Order today directing enforcement agencies, boards, and commissions to report all fines, fees, suspensions related to the COVID-19 shutdown violations. The Governor also announced he will direct agencies to halt further collection and enforcement action in his upcoming budget to be delivered on December 15th. The budget will also direct the Secretary of Finance to work with agencies to develop a reimbursement process for individuals and businesses who paid unjust COVID-19 fines and fees.
“I am today requiring a statewide review of COVID-19 related penalties imposed by the Northam administration. The fact that businesses are still dealing with COVID-19 related penalties and fines is infuriating. Livelihoods are on the line,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin. “In the previous administration, we saw our government shut down businesses, close our schools, and separate us from each other. While we can’t undo the damage done during the Northam administration, we are taking action going forward to end COVID-era draconian overreach.”
“I look forward to working with the General Assembly to address this, forgive COVID fines and fees and restore licenses that were unjustly suspended,” Governor Youngkin continued.
The budget language will not apply to instances where the violation was in relation to practices, guidelines, rules or operating procedures intended to protect the health and safety of individuals, patients, residents, and staff of hospitals, nursing homes, certified nursing facilities, hospices, or assisted living facilities.
So far he’s walking the walk!

The CoVid bullshit had nothing to do with “… the health and safety …” of ANY-FUKKIN-THING. Same virus that gives us the common cold and our annual flu.
A hoax – far more pernicious than Piltdown Man – and deadlier, through gov’t excesses, than the Holocaust – fairly certain that the “vaxx” and “boosters” have killed more than 15,000,000 worldwide.
How did Youngkin get elected? Caught the Demofrauds sleeping?
izlamo delenda est …
Youngkin was forced on us by the GOP. There was a “caucus” to nominate him instead of a primary, which means the elite and connected got to pick him instead of us dirty rural rednecks. Believe me there were far more great choices.
As expected there is mostly the sound of crickets coming from Richmond, unless some easy knee-jerk reaction is needed.
RINOS gonna RINO.
Thank you much. It seems, regardless, that he’s trying to buck the establishment.
