Look for Capitol Contact on Tuesdays and Thursdays
The 2019 General Assembly session will span from January 9 to February 23 as legislators will deliberate on many issues critical to local government, including taxes, the state budget, education funding, economic development, public safety, and other policy matters.
Capitol Contact will be published every Tuesday and Thursday. In addition, VACo will email and text Capitol Contact Alerts to County Officials on important issues before they are heard by select committees. If you would like to receive text alerts on your phone – email Gage Harter your name and cell number.
Please check VACo’s website and the General Assembly webpage often to get the latest information and bill updates. Also, be on the lookout for legislative podcasts and videos with state lawmakers and VACo Staff. VACo will continue to release its newsletter, County Connections, around the first and 15th of each month.
And be sure to attend VACo’s County Government Day on January 31 in Richmond. Come hear Governor Ralph Northam speak and VACo Staff give legislative updates. Then go to the Capitol to advocate on behalf of counties. Be a part of the legislative process at the 2019 General Assembly Session.
