The 2023 TJPD Legislative Program has been approved by the six local governing bodies in the region. The Program has three top legislative priorities, which address public education funding; budgets and funding and broadband. The Program also contains legislative positions in a number of other topic areas of interest to local governments, including the Children’s Services Act; environmental and water quality; health and human services; housing; land use and growth management; public safety and transportation. With input from the region’s local governing bodies, a regional legislative program is developed and approved each year in advance of the upcoming Virginia General Assembly session. The Program is posted on the TJPDC website here.
