Summary as passed: (all summaries)
General provisions; statutory construction of "reenacted." Construes the term "reenacted" as used in a title and enactment clause to mean that the changes made by the bill to an act or Code section are in addition to the existing substantive provisions of that act or section, and are effective prospectively unless the bill expressly provides that such changes are effective retroactively on a specified date. Also, this rule of construction is declared to be existing public policy and law. Finally, the legislation states that it is intended to reverse the ruling in Rubio v. Rubio, 33 Va. App. 74, 531 S.E. 2nd 612 (2000).
