Gov. Youngkin Calls Special Session of General Assembly for April 4th

Gov. Glenn Youngkin announced Wednesday he wants lawmakers back in Richmond in early April to finish this year’s work. The clock ran out during the regular General Assembly session without the Democrat controlled Senate and GOP controlled House reaching agreement on the state budget.

Rather than stay late, lawmakers opted to go home on March 12 and reconvene later for a special session to pass the spending plan and take up other bills that remained unfinished.

The Republican governor issued a proclamation Wednesday saying that the special session will commence April 4.
