A Quiet Day around the General Assembly Building

We hope everyone has been able to dig out from the aftermath of Winter Storm Jonas. As you may have heard, the General Assembly called a rare snow day on Friday and had a delayed opening today with all morning committee meetings cancelled. The House and Senate did go into session at noon today but there were several empty seats around the chamber. This morning’s delayed opening impacted the House Education Committee meeting which was cancelled. Your VSBA lobbying team took advantage of the quiet day and met with several legislators to discuss their bills. The regular schedule will fully resume tomorrow with the House Education Subcommittee on Education Innovation meeting at 7:30a.m. Check back tomorrow for a report on the subcommittee’s actions.
