The Last 8 Days at the 2016 Virginia General Assembly Session

Back on Thursday January 21st my husband and I spent 2.5 hours at the Virginia General Assembly building. 

On Tuesday January 26th   we spent 3.5 hours there. 

On Wednesday January 27th we spent 13 hours there. 

And today Thursday January 28th we spent 2.5 hours at the Virginia General Assembly building. 

In those 4 days we scheduled and met with 17 Delegates (or their Legislative Assistant) and 3 Senators (or their Legislative Assistant) that’s 14.28% of the Virginia Legislature. 

On Wednesday January 27th there were two simultaneous Senate Committee meetings where one Bill needed to be amended and one bill need to be opposed. 

I’ve posted about the Bill(s) that needed to be opposed here and it’s gotten even worse so there is an action item. 

I’ve posted about the Bill that needed to be amended here and it was amended but it could be undone at any point before it heads to the House so I am continuing to monitor it.
