The 2019 edition of the Catalog of State and Federal Mandates on Local Governments has been approved and published by the Commission on Local Government. The Commission approved the 2019 version on September 12, 2019. The Code of Virginia, § 15.2-2903(7), directs the Commission to prepare and annually update a catalog of this nature. The online database catalog was produced with the input of various agencies that administer or have purview over the mandates.
The catalog is available at the following link: Mandates Online Database (https://dmz1.dhcd.virginia.gov/Mandates…/MandatesSearch.aspx). It has also been published to LIS (https://rga.lis.virginia.gov/Published/2019/RD342).
