Virginia’s newly sworn-in Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin signed nine executive orders on his first day in office. The orders included ending the use of Critical Race Theory in schools, investigating officials’ alleged wrongdoing in Loudoun County, and allowing parents to decide if their children should wear masks in schools. In addition to the executive orders, Youngkin signed two executive directives that will cut job regulations by 25% and rescind the coronavirus vaccine mandate for state employees.
