It was announced by Senate Majority Leader Thomas K. Norment, Jr. (R-James City) during the annual Senate Finance Committee in Staunton this past weekend that Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) was named Senate Majority Whip for the Senate of Virginia.
“Senator Reeves is a strong and effective voice for the majority, and he will be an outstanding Whip,” Norment noted, adding, “Joining Senators McWaters, Stanley, and Vogel, the addition of Senator Reeves compliments a proven leadership team that is ready to hit the ground running when we convene for the 2015 General Assembly session.”
Reeves commented, “I am honored and excited to serve my Republican colleagues as a Whip. We have an important session ahead and our members are ready to approve policies that will create jobs, enhanceVirginians’ quality of life, and protect our hard-earned reputation as one of the best states in America for businesses to grow. Republican Senators are prepared to lead and committed to ending the gridlock that characterized the 136 days when the other party was in the majority.”
Senator Bryce E. Reeves represents the 17th District in the Senate of Virginia. The 17th District includes Orange County, portions of Albemarle, Culpeper, Louisa, and Spotsylvania Counties and the City of Fredericksburg.
