2020 Legislative Session

January 10th, 2020

The 2020 legislative session began right where legislators left off last May. Rep. Cynthia Browning (D-Arlington), among others summed it up: "it's like we never left." Committee work started the first day back - Tuesday - and the Democratic supermajority have high hopes in tackling issues across the board before heading home to campaign. Issues include minimum wage, paid family leave, addressing climate change by cutting carbon emissions, curtailing vaping, establishing a legal market for marijuana, reforming the state's prison system, and much more.

Stay tuned for updates as we progress through the session, and keep in mind that up to the minute information is available to VRGA members long before it makes its way here through targeted alerts, legislative updates, newsletters and more!
