The General Assembly reconvened on April 20th for "Veto Session" to consider the Governor's amendments and vetoes to the over 800 bills passed this year.  All of the Governor's vetoes were sustained.  The General Assembly also considered the Governor's 45 amendments to bills. Of those, 40 were accepted, including the Go Virginia economic development program.

The General Assembly adjourned Sine Die on March 11th, one day early, after completing work on thousands of bills and a $105 billion two-year budget.   The Governor has until midnight, April 11th to sign, amend, or veto the legislation on his desk.  On Wednesday, April 20th, the General Assembly will return for Reconvened Session to consider the Governor's amendments and vetoes.
