FILE – In this Jan. 27, 2020 file photo, House Speaker Eileen Filler-Corn, D-Fiarfax, watches the vote tally board for the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in the House chambers at the Capitol, in Richmond, Va. Some criminal justice activists are disappointed by the number of reform proposals that have stalled in Virginia’s legislature this year, despite a new Democratic majority and have sent a letter to Filler-Corn to protest appointing “a current prosecutor without a strong track record on these issues.” (AP Photo/Steve Helber, File)
