2020 Virginia Legislative Session:  The General Assembly session for 2020 begins on Wednesday, January 8, and runs for 46 days. On December 4, 2019, the League of Women Voters of Virginia will hold a “Pre-Session Roundtable” to review the potential challenges and opportunities in legislation this session.

On Wednesdays during the GA Session, the League hosts an hour-long morning briefing by Legislators and/or Advocacy/Issue groups (WLRT Women’s Legislative Roundtable Meetings). Thus, we get updates on legislation throughout the Session so that our advocacy messages are very timely. League members who attend on Wednesdays arrange to visit their legislators and committee meetings and floor sessions.

To learn more about the Roundtable, read LWV-VA’s brochure.
