RICHMOND, Va.—The Virginia House of Delegates announced that the upcoming Special Legislative Session this summer will be held in person.
Virginia House Democratic Majority Leader Charniele Herring and House Democratic Caucus Chair Rip Sullivan released this statement in response:
“The House Democratic Majority followed the science and took the necessary safety precautions, allowing us to meet and do the people’s business through the height of the pandemic — and in turn protect members, staff of the House of Delegates, and our constituents. But the success of the vaccine rollout means we can soon safely convene in person for the first time in over a year. It is thanks to the hard work of our Federal and Commonwealth governments, as well as the volunteer teams who have been working tirelessly to get America back on track, that we can safely make this decision. We look forward to working together on building a better and stronger Virginia.”
