I'm David Bulova and I represent the 37th District - the heart of Fairfax - in the Virginia House of Delegates.
As a life-long resident of Fairfax, I know how hard we have worked to build a vibrant and caring community. We need common-sense leadership in the General Assembly to continue to build our quality of life and to invest in our future. We also need leadership that will work with, and not against, our county and city governments to solve our common challenges.
I believe strongly in the value of public service, responsibility, honesty, hard work, and fairness. I also believe in listening. Each of us brings an important perspective and I value your input. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas.
I hope that you will explore my website and check back for updates and special events. Together, we can make the 37th District an even better place to live, work, and raise our families! Feel free to contact me with your feedback on any issue.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I am pleased to continue a tradition started in 2006 by holding Fall informal office hours. Constituents can share an issue or ask questions about legislation that is likely to be debated during the 2019 General Assembly. The format is casual and no appointment is needed. Coffee is on me!
Below is the full schedule. All events will take place from 9 to 11 a.m.
This year, 2,606 bills were introduced in the General Assembly. Of those, 837 passed both the House and the Senate and were ultimately signed by the Governor. Most of these went into effect on July 1st. Below, you will find a selection of some of the new laws passed this year. You can also click here for a more comprehensive overview of legislation, including bills that did not pass .
On March 10th, the 2018 legislative session adjourned sine die - meaning that the regular session is now in the history books. While much was accomplished, one major issue remains unresolved. Unfortunately, the House and the Senate budget conferees were not able to agree on our biennial budget.
