Biography

2014-2015

At the beginning of the 2014 legislative session, Bulova served on the following committees:

Virginia Committee Assignments, 2014
Agriculture, Chesapeake and Natural Resources
Education
General laws

2012-2013

In the 2012-2013 legislative session, Bulova served on the following committees:

2010-2011

In the 2010-2011 legislative session, Bulova served on the following committees:

Issues

  • HB 1993 Highway maintenance funds; requirements for Commonwealth Transportation Board in allocating.
  • HB 1995 Northern Virginia Transportation Authority; adds Cities of Alexandria, etc., to use % of revenues.
  • HB 2406 School records; may be received as evidence in cases involving custody of students, etc.[2]

Campaign themes

2013

Bulova’s website highlighted the following campaign themes:[3]

  • Fiscal Responsibility

Excerpt: "I have supported several initiatives to streamline the delivery of services. In 2010, I spearheaded successful legislation (HB 208) that eliminated a half-dozen outdated or redundant school reporting requirements to ensure that funding goes where it belongs — in our classrooms. In 2012, I supported and was appointed to the conference committee for HB 1295, which eliminated several outdated mandates on local government and regional government entities."

  • Transportation

Excerpt: ."..I will continue to advocate for changes in the way that transportation funding is distributed to make it more equitable for Northern Virginia. I spearheaded efforts to change the transportation maintenance formula (HBs 389, 6011, 1993, 1491, and 477) and in 2013 co-patroned legislation to provide Northern Virginia with more representation on the Commonwealth Transportation Board (HB 864). Getting our fair share will continue to be one of my top priorities."

  • Education

Excerpt: "This year I introduced legislation (HB1674) to provide our localities with more flexibility to innovate while maintaining high standards of accountability. I also spoke on the House Floor against attempts by the Governor to take away education funding for Northern Virginia that recognizes that our cost of living is by far the highest in the state."

  • Jobs and Economic Growth

Excerpt: "While there are signs of improvement, much more needs to be done to reduce unemployment and spark economic growth. This requires investing in our transportation infrastructure and education, fostering an environment that rewards creativity and innovation, and reducing regulatory burdens to starting and running a business. In particular, Virginia needs to increase investments in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and our community college system. We also need to reform and streamline our tax system while ensuring that sufficient revenue is generated at the state and local levels to provide needed services."

  • Energy

Excerpt: "Whether you are concerned about the impacts of climate change or the threat to national security posed by our dependence on foreign energy sources, sustainable energy is one of our nation’s greatest challenges. In 2011, I introduced successful legislation that will position Virginia to be a leader in the area of electric plug-in vehicles by eliminating regulatory hurdles that would stifle entrepreneurialism (HB 2105)."

2011

Bulova's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "In addition to new construction, we must adequately maintain our existing infrastructure. The current funding formula not only under-funds maintenance, it is also unfair to Northern Virginia."

  • Energy

Excerpt: "I successfully passed HB 1994 to increase Virginia’s renewable energy goal to 15% by the year 2025. This legislation, and others like it, will protect consumers in the long-run from volatile energy prices caused by our reliance on fossil fuels."

  • Illegal immigration

Excerpt: "I have consistently supported common-sense measures to strengthen penalties against businesses that knowingly violate our immigration laws and to ensure that our State agencies are sharing information on immigration status."

2007

Bulova's answers to the Virginia State Legislative Election 2007 National Political Awareness Test are available. He did not answer the question asking his top priorities.[4]

Race snapshot

See also: 2013 Elections Preview: Some seats may switch parties in the Virginia House of Delegates

Incumbent David Bulova (D) defeated a Republican lobbyist opponent in 2011 with almost 60 percent of the vote, but observers thought that Winter, a former Fairfax City Council member and a professor, might have made this seat competitive in 2013. President Barack Obama (D) won 60 percent of the vote in this district in 2012, but Governor Bob McDonnell (R) won this district with 53 percent of the vote in 2009, which was a year when Bulova faced only third-party opposition.[6][7]
