SB 309 (Hanger) extends the moratorium on city annexations until 2024. It also directs the Commission on Local Government to evaluate the structure of cities and counties and to recommend alternatives to the current moratorium. The study by COLG is to be completed by December 2018. SB 309 was reported from the Senate Local Government Committee and is positioned to be passed by the Senate.

HB 945 (Wilt) has identical language and should be approved by the House Counties, Cities and Towns Committee.

VACo supports both bills.
