The General Assembly will reconvene of Wednesday,  April 15th  for Veto Session, at which time we will address the Governor's amendments to and vetoes of legislation. 

The 2015 General Assembly Session adjourned  Sine Die  on Friday, February 27th , one day early.  We were able to accomplish a number of things, including the budget, ethics reform, education reform bills (summarized in my most recent Op-Ed in the  Richmond Times-Dispatch ), and bills addressing sexual assault on college campuses, which I highlighted in my Op-Ed two weeks ago.
