The members of the General Assembly have been passionately advocating for the constituents of the Commonwealth. There has been an abundant amount of legislation processed to date in both chambers. As one would expect, much of the legislation has centered around school safety, worker's and voting rights, affordable housing and evictions, gun safety measures and criminal justice reform. On Wednesday, February 14, 2024, the bills that have passed through the senate will begin committee hearings in the house and visa versa. Once this process is complete all legislation that passes both chambers will go to the Governor's office to be signed into law or vetoed.
