Summary as introduced:
Statutory construction; use of population brackets. Restates the provisions of the Constitution of Virginia relative to the definition of a "general law." Also, provides for a conclusive presumption that the use of county, city or town population brackets for the application of certain statutes and acts of Assembly shall, after July 1, 2001, be construed for purposes of statutory construction and procedural requirements as special laws within the context of Item 5, 1, Article VII of the Constitution of Virginia, if such bracket or language is applicable to only one political unit. A savings clause is provided to grandfather existing statutes as they may apply to certain counties, cities or towns.
