Senate President Pro Tem Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) said his caucus’s 2022 agenda is focused on “nuts and bolts” measures.

Senate Republican leader Rodric Bray (R-Martinsville) said his caucus’s agenda this year is focused on “nuts and bolts” measures.

That agenda, released Tuesday, contains three items: an expansion of the state’s automatic taxpayer refund, ensuring schools don’t lose funding because of quarantined students and helping end the public health emergency.

Bray said those measures "need to get done."

“The automatic taxpayer refund is important that we get about 900,000 more people to get the benefit of that,” Bray said.
