Getting Ready for the 2016 Virginia General Assembly Session: Do You Know Who Your Two Representatives Are? Have You Introduced Yourself to Them? Have You Signed Up to Receive Their Newsletters?

The 2016 Virginia General Assembly session begins in Richmond, VA 9 weeks from today, on the second Wednesday of January. 

This will be my 8th session as a volunteer advocate working for data-driven reform of Virginia’s Sex Offender Registry and Laws. 

The annual Virginia General Assembly is where new State laws are proposed, debated, voted on and passed onto the Governor to be signed into law, amended or vetoed. 

2016 is an even-year so we are looking at a Long Session (60 calendar days) as opposed to an odd-year, Short Session (30 calendar days).
