It is time for another session of Virginia’s legislature and dLCV’s perspectives on all that is happening. Welcome to “Our View of the Legislature” for 2023. Each year, the Virginia General Assembly considers hundreds of proposals to amend or add to the current law in our Commonwealth. At this site, the disAbility Law Center of Virginia will share with you our view of some of those proposals and how they might impact the lives of Virginians with disabilities and their friends, family, and supporters.
The 2023 legislative session in Virginia will begin Wednesday, January 11th at noon. Under our state constitution, this session should last for 45 days. Some years, the legislature cannot complete all of their work within the scheduled time, so, for now, we expect the session to end on Saturday, February 25th.
As with last year, the Virginia General Assembly will meet in person and allow the public to participate in person or virtually.
The disAbility Law Center of Virginia’s mission is to advance independence, choice, and self-determination; protect legal, human and rights; and eliminate abuse, neglect, and discrimination of people with disabilities through zealous and uncompromising legal advocacy and representation. We are available to educate policymakers about the potential impact of legislative proposals. Please let us know of any legislative proposals or budget issues that you think we should be following. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1-800-552-3962 or 804-225-2042.
We will post regular updates on developments in the legislature on our website, on Facebook, and on Twitter …. So stay tuned!
