Governor McAuliffe Signs "Conner's Law"
The 2015 Session at its Halfway Point
Updates from Senator Jennifer Wexton
Today marked the start of the second half of our legislative session, so I wanted to give you a quick update on my legislation and other important issues. February 10th was "crossover", which is the deadline by which all Senate bills must be acted on in the Senate chamber, and vice versa for bills from the House of Delegates. Now, all Senate bills that were passed will now move to the House of Delegates for consideration. I am excited to advocate for my legislation before my colleagues in the House and feel confident that many of these bills will pass both chambers.
