House Republican Leader Todd Gilbert issued the following statement on President Biden’s visit to Yorktown:

“Let me be among the first to welcome President Biden back to the Commonwealth. While he’s here to discuss education, I’m hopeful that he will speak with Virginia Democrats and tell them what he told NBC last week: that the science says our schools should be open.

“Getting our kids back into school must be our highest priority in education. Full stop. Until we do that, no amount of federal money for pre-kindergarten or community college will make any difference in our children’s future. We still have a month or so that could be salvaged in this school year. I’m hopeful that President Biden can make our Democratic colleagues in Virginia understand that. “
