I was able to join U.S. Senator Tim Kaine for a tour of the damage done to the launch pad at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport at Wallops Island on the Eastern Shore. With the news of the federal appropriation to re-build and repair, Virginia will once again be in the commercial launch business in 2016. As we look forward to future launches, it is good to remember the Wallops and Chincoteague firefighters and other first responders who rushed to deal with the explosion. Thank you to all!

I was glad to appear before the Norfolk Federation of Civic Leagues to discuss a whole range of issues facing Norfolk and the Commonwealth. Thanks to Bob Rawls, Philip Hawkins, Jan Carney and the membership for the opportunity. My friend, Delegate Joe Lindsey stopped by as well. It was also nice to have a chance to visit the Willoughby Civic League holiday party and chat with those in attendance. It is always great to meet so many of our residents of the 6th Senate district.

Press Release – Senator Lynwood Lewis Senator Lewis Statement on NASA Funding for Wallops Repairs The announcement that the compromise spending Bill expected to be voted on and passed by Congress this week contains $20 million in Federal funding for repairs to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport is great news. It clearly indicates the importance of our Wallops Island launch facility to the future of commercial space launches. I want to thank Senator Warner, Senator Kaine and Congressman Rigell for all of their hard work to include this funding in the compromise Bill. This is especially good news in light of Orbital’s announcement earlier this week that while it must launch from Cape Canaveral until the Wallops Island launch facility is repaired, they fully intend to resume launches at Wallops with their new engine in 2016. I will continue to work in the General Assembly to make Virginia a leader in commercial space launches. ...

We held a very informative town hall meeting at Eastern Shore Community College addressing the issue of safety for Route 13. There was a detailed presentation of safety statistics and the current state of safety enhancements by representatives of VDOT. Then along with members of the Virginia State Police, they were able to hear first hand the important ideas and suggestions from the residents of the Eastern Shore in order to continue the effort of making Route 13 safer. These meetings have resulted in a commitment from VDOT to update the Route 13 Corridor Study which was completed over ten years ago as well as consider issues raised in our two meetings. The update will begin in the Spring. I appreciate all those who took the time to participate. As usual, the college was a great host. (2 photos) ...
