Most Bills Passed By for Day in Senate

After a long recess to discuss the budget, the State Senate reconvened, took up the uncontested bills on Third Reading on the calendar then passed by for the day all of the contested bills. This means that HB1655 will have to wait until at least Thursday for a vote. HB 1655 is the bill putting teeth in Virginia's preemption statute by requiring the court to award attorney fees when a citizen challenges an ordinance or resolution that violates Virginia's firearms preemption statute.
