Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-Virginia) vetoed SB 236 a bill passed largely along party lines in the state legislature that would've codified the right for students in public schools to organize prayer groups on school grounds and display religious clothing, jewelry etc. during the school day.
The bill made it clear that students that independently organize prayer groups, such as the "see you at the pole" nationwide prayer event, would be able to do so. It was also designed to protect students in the event they chose to express a religious viewpoint in public forums on school grounds.
In a veto statement McAuliffe said a law in this fashion was not necessary and would instead infringe "on students' right to be free from coercive prayer".

The legislature would have the option to override the veto, but given the largely party line vote during it's initial passage that appears unlikely.
