Bills introduced this week in the House by
Del. Jennifer McClellan (D-Richmond)
and in the Senate by Sen. John Watkins (R-Midlothian) seek to close a loophole which allowed a methadone clinic to open down the hill from Bellevue Elementary School:

Location of methadone clinics near schools and day care centers; exemptions for existing facilities and providers. Provides that licensed providers of methadone treatment that are exempt from restrictions regarding proximity to a school or day care center do not retain the exemption when relocating an existing facility or establishing a new facility.
