The 2016 General Assembly session will span from January 13 to March 12, 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. To ensure that you are receiving Capitol Contact, please send Gage Harter your best e-mail address. Also contact Gage Harter if you want to receive legislative text alerts.
Capitol Contact is published every Tuesday and Thursday starting in 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 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.
