The General Assembly returns to Richmond today to consider Governor McAuliffe’s vetoes and amendments to bills passed earlier this year.  In total, the governor vetoed 17 bills and amended 68 others. 

The Vetoes

The governor has vetoed six bills dealing with redistricting.  The constitution states redistricting should only be done in years ending in 01.  Allowing the legislature to make changes anytime would result in new lines being drawn whenever the majority changes in the House or Senate.
