VBRA Lobbyist Report - January 26, 2024

01/26/2024 3:32 PM | Denis Bourbeau

This week is a pivotal week in the legislative session, as the House concludes its work on amending the previous year’s budget and the Governor proposes his budget for the coming year.

  • Legislators now have a framework for the budget, even if they do not agree with all of it. The typical session is 17 or 18 weeks, and when the budget is done, the session is too, so the stopwatch on all legislation starts now.
  • We’re not quite a quarter of the way in, and the next pivotal time comes at crossover, typically six weeks from now, when legislators need to have bills out of the committee of jurisdiction, or they’re done for the year.
  • So, lines are drawn, the course is set – on your mark, get set, go.

This week, we have a 10,000-foot view of the session’s top three issues, public safety, housing, and affordability, that you’ll want to read (4 to 5 minutes), if nothing else. Click here to read more.
