Virginia General Assembly Adjourns Sine Die
The 2022 session of the Virginia General Assembly adjourned sine die on March 12, but failed to complete and pass the biennial budget.
Gov. Glenn Youngkin is expected to call a special session to enact a budget once lawmakers have reached an agreement.
Passed bills included Senate Bill 57 to provide an exception to gift restrictions for certain tickets and admission if performing official duties; and House Bill 125 to impose a $10,000 penalty for illegal negative campaign advertisements.
Both bills now await gubernatorial action by Youngkin.
This does affect lobbyist reporting.
The lobbyist gift notification to public officials is due on April 2.
