“The governor’s proposed budget (HB1600) was passed on Feb. 12 with several amendments by the House of Delegates. These amendments were created by the House Appropriations Committee and resulted in unsuccessful objections by House Democrats to several harmful amendments in such areas as education (K-12 and higher ed.), stem cell research, energy and water quality improvement.

The Senate wanted to wait until the January revenue data was available and for the details of what Virginia would receive from the recent federal economic stimulus package. The Speaker of the House decided to not wait.”

Now, we in the House can only consider the Senate’s bills (and vice versa). About 2,300 bills and resolutions were introduced this year and about half are still alive. So, here’s a rundown of some of the significant pieces of legislation:
