City of Alexandria's 2013 Legislative Package
The General Assembly meets annually, beginning on the second Wednesday in January, for 60 days in even-numbered years and for 30 days in odd-numbered years, with an option to extend annual sessions for a maximum of 30 days. The Senate of Virginia and the Virginia House of Delegates, both bodies of the Virginia Legislature, meet in the historic, working Capitol building in Richmond, Virginia.
The following issues, proposals and legislation comprise the City’s legislative priorities for the 2013 Virginia General Assembly session.
A — MAJOR FISCAL ISSUES
B — TRANSPORTATION FUNDING PROPOSALS
DRPT’s model results using real data have changed each time the model has been run, illustrating that the new approach is very sensitive to data. While we cannot predict the precise impact of the new approach in the short term, we do know that it will undermine the stability of local transit agencies. We also expect that the City would see a decrease in State funding for transit if this proposal is implemented. City position: the City opposes any proposal to base State transit funding on performance measures such as those outlined in the SJR 297 study.
