On April 17, 2024, the Virginia General Assembly met for the reconvene session to discuss Governor Glenn Youngkin’s vetoes, bill amendments, and budget proposal. During this meeting, the House of Delegates rejected all 233 amendments made to the budget and there was no common ground found to pass the biennial budget. The Governor and General Assembly agreed to scrap the existing biennial budget and begin again during a special session called for May 13, 2024. This special session aims to reconsider the budget and prevent a potential shutdown before the current budget expires on June 30, 2024. During the special session, legislators in both the House of Delegates and Senate will be proposing a conference report for a 2024 - 2026 biennial budget for deliberation by the General Assembly.
