GA back in session today

general assemblyThe General Assembly is back in session today, taking up bills that have recommendations from Governor Bob McDonnell. The list of bills can be found here. The budget bill, for example, contains 52 amendments.

Some of the bill amendments have gotten significant play, like this one that provides that insurers offering policies through the health care exchanges cannot cover abortions, with exceptions for life of the mother or rape/incest. Others, like the changes to the Port Authority Board of Commissioners, portend other changes the governor would like to make.

It’s going to be a very long day in Richmond.
