The budget conference report was released Wednesday night, and the vote on the budget will take place on Friday, Feb. 24.  Additional information was available in a briefing by the House Appropriations Committee staff to members Thursday afternoon.  Amendments are being analyzed carefully by VCCS’s budget experts and will be communicated at a later date. 

Only a few bills of interest to the VCCS are remaining and are in conference.  The bill list by category is attached and was run Thursday morning.  A numerical listing from Thursday afternoon is also attached.  A final report will be available next week.

The reconvened or “veto” session is scheduled for Wednesday, April 5.  Legislators are already moving out of their offices, as the General Assembly Building will be closing for demolition soon, and all legislative offices, committee, and subcommittee rooms will be relocated to the Pocahontas Building on Main Street for an estimated four years.
