2023 Inventory of Water-Related Legislation in the Virginia General Assembly

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, then publish a final version after the end of the reconvened (“veto”) session (held in 2023 on April 12).

The final version of the inventory for 2023 is now available (as a PDF) at http://www.vwrrc.vt.edu/virginia-water-legislation/.  The inventory lists 135 measures (including two 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 summary of the bill, the bill’s full text, and the bill’s legislative history.

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.
