2022 Virginia General Assembly Session

We have reached the part of Session known as “Crossover” – the mid-point of the 60-day Session when each Chamber (House and Senate) must complete their work on the bills introduced by their respective members. This week, the bills which have passed the Housing of Delegates will now be sent to the State Senate for a hearing and vice-versa.

At the beginning of Session, the HBAV Government Affairs team identified over 170 bills with a direct or indirect impact on the residential land development and construction industry. Over the last 35 days, we have met with legislators, testified at subcommittee and committee hearings, and worked to pass, defeat, or amend many of these bills.

Below is an overview of some of the bills that have been keeping us busy, including:
• HBAV’s 2022 Legislative Agenda
• Local Building Codes and Energy Codes
• Land-Use, Zoning, Comprehensive Plans
• Nutrient Credits/Wetland and Stream Mitigation Credits
• Environmental Legislation

With 25 days left in Session, our work is not over! If you would like to support our advocacy efforts, please consider making a $100, $250, $500, $1,000, or $2,000 contribution to our political action committee, the HBAV BuildPAC.

If you have any questions or comments about the bills being considered in Richmond, please contact HBAV’s Vice President of Government Affairs at
