On Monday, the General Assembly returns to Richmond for a Redistricting Special Session.  This session results from a federal court finding our 2011 Congressional redistricting plan unconstitutional because it improperly concentrated African American voters into the 3rd Congressional District.  The court ordered the General Assembly to develop a new Congressional redistricting plan by September 1, 2015, and has denied appeals and a request for a stay by Congressional Republicans.  While no plan has yet to be introduced, any plan considered should meet certain legal and policy criteria.  

The 2015 General Assembly Session adjourned on February 27th and returned on April 15th for three days for Reconvened Session to act on the Goveronor's vetoes and amendments to bills. We passed a revised budget reflecting a budget shortfall due to federal sequestration. A summary of major bills passed this year is included in this newsletter.

 

The General Assembly reconvened on April 15th for Veto Session, at which time we addressed the Governor's vetoes of and amendments to legislation passed during the 2015 Session.  You can read a summary of the Governor's vetoes and amendments here
