December 2, 2013 Virginia State Crime Commission Meeting Agenda

 
The third and final Virginia State Crime Commission meeting for 2013 is being held next Monday December 2, 2013 at 10AM. 

The agenda was released via email today (but as of this post it was not available on-line yet), it is below. 

I previously posted the Tuesday, September 3, 2013 agenda plus the two statements that I made during that meeting. 

I previously posted the Thursday November 14, 2013 agenda plus the one statement that I made during that meeting. 

This December meeting is where the VSCC members vote on all the proposals that have been made at the earlier meetings. Legislation has been drafted and will be discussed at next Monday’s meeting and then the members will vote if the drafted legislation should be patroned and submitted at the upcoming 2014 Virginia General Assembly session or not. 

Any proposals that are moved onto the G.A. session must make it through the process of a bill becoming a law so a vote at the December 2nd meeting just means the VSCC members have studied the proposal and approve of it.

Part 1 – to study the laws and policies governing the investigation of alleged child sexual abuse in the Commonwealth; this was the reason for the summer Work Group.
