What is the General Assembly? Who is my delegate? Who is my senator? Why should I care about the General Assembly? What is a bill? How Does A Bill Become Law? Am I Allowed to Speak at the G-A?
Get up close and personal with lawmakers in the Virginia General Assembly with Miss Community Clovia during Community Day at the G-A. Bring your questions for lawmakers. Lite refreshments will be served. Space is limited so register for the free event here. In partnership with Rolling For Freedom-R4F, the men of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, INC, #LadiesWhoLead and Radio One Richmond.
What is a bill? Watch this video but in this case we are talking about the Virginia General Assembly and not Congress. In Virginia, the governor has the authority to sign bills into law. Laws in Virginia go into effect every July 1.
