RICHMOND — A House of Delegates subcommittee has rejected an attempt to amend the Virginia Constitution to allow automatic restoration of civil rights to nonviolent felons once they complete their criminal sentences.
The House panel’s action signals that it is unlikely to be enacted this year in the General Assembly.
That means Virginia will remain one of two states — Kentucky is the other — that set the highest bar in the nation for felons to regain their rights of citizenship.
