previously posted the Tuesday, September 3, 2013 agendaplus
the two statements that I made during that
previously posted the Thursday November 14, 2013 agenda
plus the one statement that I made during that
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.
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
