It’s been a fast and furious General Assembly Session here at VACo. Our Legislative Team has worked hard advocating on a slew of issues affecting counties.
We’ve chronicled these issues in Capitol Contacts since the start of the session. Capitol Contact is VACo’s legislative bulletin that is published at least twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday when the General Assembly is in session. VACo also issues a Capitol Contact ALERT when we need your help in supporting or opposing a bill.
Here are the latest Capitol Contacts.
