The 2015 Legislative Program is to be adopted during the annual conference at the Omni Homestead Resort in Bath County. VACo’s seven steering committees will finalize and adopt their policy sections on Sunday, November 9. The Resolutions Committee will discuss and ratify the program on Monday, November 10, and the VACo membership will adopt the program during the annual business meeting on Tuesday, November 11.
Request for County Legislative Proposals
The next key component of the VACo Legislative Process is to hear directly from member counties regarding their policy priorities for the 2015 session of the General Assembly.
