Regulations and Current Regulatory Activity

Virginia government maintains two important websites to keep the public informed about changes to the Code of Virginia and the Virginia Administrative Code.

The Virginia Legislative Information System is the website of the General Assembly of Virginia.  Here you can look up the Constitution of Virginia and the Code of Virginia, as well as track bills and resolutions when the General Assembly is in session.

The Virginia Regulatory Town Hall is “a comprehensive source of information about proposed changes to Virginia's regulations, including a meetings calendar and board minutes. This site also facilitates public participation through online comment forums and an email notification service.”
