Legislators act on thousands of bills during session
Virginia lawmakers considered 2,692 bills during their 47-day session, which ended one day late Sunday.
They passed 1,599 of them and killed hundreds of others.
Gov. Bob McDonnell (R) has 30 days from adjournment to consider most bills, though some had to be considered in just a week of being sent to him if more than seven days remained of the session. He has already signed 15 bills.
Legislators will return to Richmond April 6 to act on the governor's amendments and vetoes.
