VA House Okays Repeal Of ‘Kings Dominion Law’

RICHMOND (CBSDC) — It looks like students in Virginia could be heading back to class a little earlier in the near future.

The Virginia House of Delegates passed a bill to repeal the “Kings Dominion law” which required school systems in the state to open after Labor Day.

The bill, HB 1063, passed on a 76-23 vote according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Its future is still unclear, however. A Senate committee killed an identical bill last week.

Opponents of the bill say opening schools before Labor Day would cause a financial burden to the state’s tourism industry.
