The Virginia Water Resources Research Center annually compiles an inventory of water-related legislation in the Virginia General Assembly. We update the inventory during the session one or more times, then publish a final version after the end of the reconvened (“veto”) session.
The final inventory for 2022–after the completion of the April 27, 2022, reconvened session–is now available (as a PDF) online at http://www.vwrrc.vt.edu/virginia-water-legislation/. The inventory lists 156 measures (including budget bills) that pertain to water directly or that pertain to land uses that can affect water, such as energy production and use. Each bill in the inventory listed is hyperlinked to the bill’s entry on the Virginia Legislative Information System, where you can find a bill summary, full text, and legislative course.
The Water Center’s legislation page also offers inventories from previous General Assembly sessions back to 1998, information on how to follow legislation and how to contact your local General Assembly members, and links to other natural-resource legislation-tracking services.
