The 2016 General Assembly Session adjourned on March 11th and returned on April 20th for Reconvened Session to act on Governor McAuliffe's vetoes and amendments to bills and the biennial budget. A summary of major bills passed this year and budget highlights are included in this newsletter.

The General Assembly reconvened on April 20th for "Veto Session" to consider the Governor's amendments and vetoes to the over 800 bills passed this year.  All of the Governor's vetoes were sustained.  The General Assembly also considered the Governor's 45 amendments to bills. Of those, 40 were accepted, including the Go Virginia economic development program.
