Virginia Special Session Called

legislative sessions, special session, Virginia

Gov. Ralph Northam called for a special session of the Legislature this week to finish work on the state’s budget.

The session will convene April 11, just one month after the adjournment of the regular session.

Lawmakers voted unanimously last week to request the special session.

Lawmakers must pass the two-year budget by June 30 in order to avoid a government shut down on July 1.
