Title

Approval of the City of Hampton 2020 General Assembly Legislative Priorities

 

Purpose

 

Background:

City Council was briefed by Two Capitols Consulting, the City's Virginia General Assembly legislative liaison, on the proposed legislative package for the upcoming 2020 General Assembly session during the October 23, 2019 City Council work session.

 

Discussion:

The City annually prepares and submits to the General Assembly a package setting forth requests for new laws, revisions to laws, appropriations, and other similar matters for which legislative action is necessary. The City's requests reflect the cumulative concerns of the City Council, the City Manager, and the citizens of the City. The package includes several City-specific requests as well as multiple policy statements regarding regional and statewide matters. The City's legislative liaison, Two Capitols Consulting, will solicit patrons for each of the City's specific requests and will monitor the progress of the City's requests, as well as all other matters considered by the General Assembly that may affect the City.
