No Sine Die … General Assembly Session Continues
Virginia’s 2020 General Assembly session has extended into overtime, according to reporters Mel Leonor and Justin Mattingly with the Richmond Times-Dispatch:
Virginia lawmakers voted late Saturday to extend the legislative session by 18 hours, allowing time for Democrats to deliver on key issues like collective bargaining, casino regulation and marijuana reform.
The extension was borne out of a three-way deal between House Democratic leaders, House GOP leaders and the Senate. It allows lawmakers to work on the state budget until Thursday — negotiators have an agreement on the spending plan — while finishing other bills by 6 p.m. Sunday.
