VSBA Action Alert

We are pleased to announce that we were successful in DEFEATING SJ6 and SJ93, the charter school constitutional amendments, on the floor of the Senate on Monday. This vote was due to your direct advocacy efforts. Many of you called, emailed, and visited your legislators several times over the past few weeks and we thank you for all of these efforts.

HJ1 did pass the House of Delegates on Friday and will be crossing over to the Senate on Wednesday. We anticipate the second vote in the Senate to have the same outcome but we must keep all of our NO votes. We will alert you when HJ1, the constitutional amendment is placed on a committee docket for consideration again.

Thank you again for your continued advocacy efforts.
