Legislative Information

The links below provide on-line bill tracking as well as access to state and federal legislatures. For example, you can check what’s currently on the House of Representatives floor, access the laws of the United States, find a bill, amendment or debate, or find vote information by going to the U.S. House website below.

2018 Virginia Legislative Session:  The General Assembly session for 2018 begins on Wednesday, January 10, and runs for 8 weeks. On December 6, 2017, the League of Women Voters of Virginia held a “Pre-Session Roundtable” featuring speakers from 19 organizations and government agencies to review the potential challenges and opportunities in legislation this session.  Use this link: LWV Presession Roundtable notes 2018-1 to access email lists as well as follow these organizations on social media.  This will enable you to get “Alerts” when people are needed to take actions and make phone calls “in support of” or “against” specific legislation going up for vote.  [Many thanks to LWV CVA member Kate Bird for preparing this excellent resource!]
