Session far different than past years, new VCC resource reports sweeping changes and future threats
During the two-month legislative session, nearly 1300 bills passed, some drastically altering or even erasing decades of state policy. For the Virginia Catholic Conference, this session was far different than any other in our 15-year history.
Our newly available vote report shows key outcomes and the votes that decided them. Take a look to see how your state senator and delegate voted. Not sure who your state legislators are? Use the Find Your Legislator feature here.
After the charts of Senate and House votes, the report displays a Future Threats section. This is a new feature of our vote report this year. It shows bills of deep concern that did not advance out of committee in 2020 but that are expected to return in some form in 2021. The patrons and co-patrons of these VCC-opposed bills are listed.
Please share our vote report with family members, friends, fellow parishioners and anyone else who would be interested in learning what legislation passed and failed, how their legislators voted and what to be on the lookout for in 2021!
