We return to Richmond on Wednesday for reconvened Session.  It is at this time that we will consider changes that Governor Bob McDonnell has made in the legislation that passed the 2010 General Assembly Session.  I am hoping that legislators use a commonsense approach to reviewing the Governor's amendments.

Check out our new website.   It has been updated and is hopefully more user friendly.

We are just two weeks away from the Governor's Veto session (April 21st).  It is in this session that any changes that the Governor proposes to veto or make changes to bills including the budget are presented to the General Assembly.   We will vote to either accept or reject those amendments or vetoes. A veto can be overridden only with a super majority.  The Governor's amendments to legislation are agreed to by a simple majority.
