Instead, Jones asked the House to take no action on the bill on Thursday, leaving it to die as the assembly faced an approaching deadline to act on all pending bills by the end of Thursday night.

"We've already dealt with all that we can", Jones said. As for the House, he said, "it's turning into a comedy".

"This is unfortunately where we are, and we have to move forward with the resolution so we can try to get a ballot out eventually", House Minority Leader David Toscano said. That is when lawmakers go over the governor's amendments and vetoes.

Gov. Ralph Northam Friday signed a highly controversial Dominion power rate bill into law.

The bill sets out a refund for rate-payers, but continues to restrict State Corporation Commission rate reviews for several years and also allows Dominion to invest excess profits in the grid rather than returning them to rate-payers.
