The 2014 Regular Session of the Virginia General Assembly (GA) has adjourned, which includes completion of the Reconvened Session on April 23, at which the GA considered amendments and vetoes to legislation passed during the Regular Session.
Legislation that passed during the 2014 Regular Session goes into effect July 1 of this year, unless otherwise specified in the legislation itself.
The Regular Session adjourned without a resolution on the 2015-16 Biennial Budget, and the Governor called the GA into a Special Budget Session on March 24th. The Special Session has no specific meeting dates or times, nor a set end date, and will continue to meet periodically until a budget decision has been reached.
