The General Assembly adjourned Sine Die on March 11th, one day early, after completing work on thousands of bills and a $105 billion two-year budget.   The Governor has until midnight, April 11th to sign, amend, or veto the legislation on his desk.  On Wednesday, April 20th, the General Assembly will return for Reconvened Session to consider the Governor's amendments and vetoes.

We are nearing the finish line for the 2016 General Assembly Session, with a little over a week to go.  Last week, the House and the Senate acted on their respective budgets. The House budget proposal, outlined below, has a number of positive items, including pay increases for state employees and increased spending on public schools. However, both the House and Senate budgets remove funding for Medicaid expansion, leaving hundreds of thousands of Virginians without access to quality health care services.

Today marks the mid-way point of the session, known as "Crossover". This is the date by which each chamber must complete work on its own bills. Before the end of the day, we will vote on hundreds of bills on the House floor, covering charter schools, juvenile justice reform, economic development, certificate of public need reform for hospitals, ethics, guns, and early childhood education.  We will address the biennial budget next week.
