Legislators act on thousands of bills during session before leaving town

Anita Kumar

The state's $4-billion budget shortfall garnered most of the attention, but the General Assembly considered thousands of bills during its 61-day annual session.

2,964 bills to be exact.

They passed 1,597, killed hundreds of them and put off others until next year.

Remember SB221? It would have prohibited homeowner associations from banning clotheslines. A House subcommittee killed the bill.

Same with HB1115, which would have imposed 5-cent fee on disposable shopping bags.

Check out our round-up of how major legislation fared.

Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) already has signed some bills, but has hundreds more to consider. Legislators will return to Richmond on April 21 for one day to act on the governor's amendments and vetoes.
