It’s that time again….time for Lobby Day at the General Assembly in Richmond. It’s on Monday, January 19th, so if you’re working, you should request the day off ASAP.
And NOW is the time for you to have influence on the legislation that will impact Virginia. NOW is when you can do more than shake your fist at the news and actually BE the difference. Please join patriots from all across the Commonwealth on the 19th, and be sure to sign up for legislative alerts if not already included.
New to the General Assembly? No Problem! Just <a href=”http://www.vatp.org/contact-us/”>let us know</a> and we’ll get you paired with someone who can show you around.
