VACo responded to the state budget impasse by writing all 140 legislators to personally urge them to negotiate and pass a FY 2015 – 2016 state budget. Linked is a copy of the letter sent to every delegate and senator. The Governor and Lieutenant Governor also were copied.
VACo has been consistent in our message to the General Assembly and the Governor in insisting the General Assembly approve a responsible budget in the most expeditious manner possible. Continued delays in approving a budget will increase difficulties in finalizing budgets for all 95 counties.
We are urging all counties to take swift and similar action by contacting your respective legislator either by letter or by sample resolution (linked). With your grassroots efforts, we can reach and deliver the county message to our legislature and executive branch offices.
Please copy VACo on your efforts by letter or resolutions.
