2014 General Assembly Session
The 2014 Virginia General Assembly convened in Richmond on January 8th and will adjourn on March 8th. It will reconvene on April 23rd to consider gubernatorial amendments and vetoes. "Crossover" the date by which each house must complete work on its own legislation, except budget and revenue bills, was February 11th.
With passage last year of historic new state and regional funding legislation (HB 2313), transportation will be less in the spotlight.
Key topics to be addressed include: possible changes in the Commonwealth Transportation Board composition, repeal of the Hybrid Fuel Vehicle registration fee (possible changes in composition), revision of the Northern Virginia Transportation Authority’s membership and powers, Virginia Department of Transportation Reforms and a new Potomac River crossing study.
