RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - The General Assembly’s special session will get underway today.

Governor Northam called for the special session last week after GOP members blocked extending the regular general assembly session.

The special session allows lawmakers more time to pass legislation including the state budget and COVID-19 relief.
