Nearly 500 bills and resolutions await final action by the General Assembly as March 7, the scheduled date of adjournment sine die, approaches. The state budget is among the major pieces of legislation still under discussion in a conference committee. If a budget agreement is not reached today, it is likely that adjournment will be delayed in order to allow the required 48 hours for members to review the budget conference report before voting on it, unless a supermajority in both chambers agrees to suspend that rule. VACo will be reporting on the budget conference agreement in a future edition of Capitol Contact.
