Virginia – 2017 General Assembly Update for Community Associations – Adjournment Sine Die

March 2, 2017 (Reprinted from Vandeventer Black’s Community Association Newsletter)

 This past Saturday, February 25, 2017, the Virginia General Assembly adjourned sine die and will not reconvene again until the “veto” session is scheduled for April 5, 2017.

In all, 2,959 bills and resolutions were introduced during the 2017 session and 242 bills were carried over from the 2016 session.  Of the bills considered, 1,773 were passed by both the Senate and the House of Delegates and forwarded to the Governor for signature.  A total of 1,428 bills failed.  The Governor has already vetoed seven bills and more may still veto more over the next few weeks.
