VSSA Legislative Update

The General Assembly is in full swing. This is the 46 day session, also known as the "Short Session." Two bills were on the House Courts of Justice Criminal Subdivision yesterday but they were re-referred to the House Militia and Police and Public Safety Committee without a hearing. The bills were HB 1655, a bill that requires a court to award reasonable attorney fees, expenses, and court costs to any entity that prevails in an action challenging an ordinance, resolution, motion, or administrative action as being in conflict with a locality's authority to control firearms, and HB 1821, a bill that repeals the ban on carrying concealed handguns in restaurants that serve alcohol. I discussed the bills and the legislative session last night on NRANews' Cam and Company.
