Summary as introduced:
Virginia Fair Housing Law; evidence of unlawful discriminatory practices.  Provides that the use of words or symbols associated with a particular religion, national origin, sex, or race may be evidence of an illegal preference under the Virginia Fair Housing Law. Current law mandates that the use of such words or symbols is prima facie evidence of an illegal preference. The bill also eliminates the prohibition against use of a general disclaimer to overcome the prima facie evidence.
