  •  § 30-13 of the Code of Virginia directs the Clerk of the House of Delegates to have published all proposed amendments to the Constitution of Virginia.  In fulfillment of that statutory requirement, please find below links to two proposed amendments to the Constitution of Virginia that were agreed to by the Virginia General Assembly during the 2020 Session:
  • HJR 103: Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article X of the Constitution of Virginia, relating to personal property tax exemption; motor vehicle owned by a veteran who is disabled. 
  • SJR 18: Proposing an amendment to Section 6 of Article II of the Constitution of Virginia and proposing an amendment to the Constitution of Virginia by adding in Article II a section numbered 6-A, relating to apportionment; Virginia Redistricting Commission.

Section § 30-13 also requires the clerk of the circuit court of each city and county to post one copy of each amendment at the front door of the courthouse, and make a second copy available for inspection by any citizen.  Additionally, § 1-211.1 provides that a clerk can satisfy the requirement for posting an official document at the court door by posting the document on the public government website of the locality served by the court or the website of the circuit court clerk.
