General Assembly in full swing means Capitol Contact in your inbox

February 2, 2015


It’s been a fast and furious start to the General Assembly Session here at VACo. Our Legislative Team has worked hard advocating on a slew of issues affecting counties.

We’ve chronicled these issues in a half dozen Capitol Contacts over the past couple of weeks. Capitol Contact is VACo’s legislative bulletin that is published at least twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday when the General Assembly is in session.

Here are the latest Capitol Contacts.
