VIRGINIA LEGISLATIVE UPDATES

Virginia members receive regular updates on legislative and regulatory action that occurs at the state and federal levels. Be sure to update your contact information in the membership directory to receive the latest updates. VALA advocates for appropriate legislative to support Virginia's assisted living industry, but we also need assisted living providers to reach out to their legislative representatives on key issues. "Who's My Legislator" can help identify state and federal legislators.
