Look for Capitol Contact on Tuesdays and Thursdays
The 2018 General Assembly session will span from January 10 to March 10, and 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.
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 email address.
Capitol Contact is published every Tuesday and Thursday starting next week. In addition, VACo will email and text county officials Capitol Contact Alerts on many issues before they are heard by select committees. If you would like to receive text alerts on your phone – email Gage Harter with your cell number.
Please check VACo’s website and General Assembly webpage often to get the latest information and bill updates. Also, be on the lookout for legislative videos recapping issues affecting counties. VACo will continue to release its newsletter, County Connections, around the first and 15th of each month.
And be sure to attend the Rural Caucus Reception and Dinner on February 7 and VACo’s County Government Day on February 8 in Richmond. Come hear legislative updates and then go advocate on behalf of counties. Be a part of the legislative process this General Assembly Session.
