Capitol Contact

January 7, 2015


The 2015 General Assembly session will span from January 14 to February 28, and legislators will deliberate on many issues critical to local government, including tax, state budget, education funding, pension funding and other public policy matters.

VACo will continually provide updates during the session through Capitol Contact and its General Assembly mobile website. To ensure that you are receiving Capitol Contact, please send Gage Harter your best e-mail address.

Capitol Contact is published every Tuesday and Thursday starting in early January. In addition, VACo will e-mail and text county officials Capitol Contact Alerts and talking points on many issues before they are heard by select committees.

Please check VACo’s website and mobile site often to get the latest information and bill updates. Also, be on the lookout for periodic VACo staff videos on issues that affect counties. VACo will continue to release its newsletter, County Connections, around the first and 15th of each month.
