Summary as enacted with Governor's Recommendation: (all summaries)
Recodification of Titles 2.1 and 9; administration of government; commissions, boards, and institutions. Recodifies Title 2.1 as Title 2.2 and Title 9 as Title 9.1. In accordance with 9-77.10, the Virginia Code Commission, in 1998, undertook three-year recodification of Titles 2.1 and 9. Title 2.1 was last recodified in 1965 and Title 9 had never been recodified until now. Because both Titles have undergone many changes since the publication of the Code of Virginia of 1950, and the laws concerning the administration of state government and its commissions, boards and institutions have been changed substantially during the past three decades, the need arose to (i) organize the laws in a more logical manner, (ii) delete obsolete and duplicative provisions, and (iii) improve the structure and clarity of Titles 2.1 and 9. During the recodification of Titles 2.1 and 9, the Virginia Code Commission has rewritten and combined sections or parts of sections to clarify provisions and to eliminate archaic, obsolete or redundant language.

The general reorganization of Title 2.1 distinguishes the organization of state government (Subtitle I--Organization of State Government) from the operation of state government (Subtitle II—Administration of State Government). In addition, the concept of a "Part" has been introduced as an organizational tool to separate functional areas within the Title. Generally, a "Part" is used to group related chapters. For example, the Governor and his cabinet secretaries have been consolidated into Part A--Office of the Governor--of Subtitle I. The Department of Law is Part B of Subtitle I. Further, state agencies related to the general operation of government have been consolidated into Part C of Subtitle I, and so on. The reorganization of Title 2.1 also includes many chapters from Title 9, Commissions, Boards and Institutions, now consolidated into Part D--State Authorities, Boards, Councils, Commissions and Other Collegial Bodies--because they were created in the executive branch of state government. Several chapters from Title 9 that were boards, councils, etc., created in the legislative branch have been moved to Title 30--General Assembly.

Title 9 has been substantially reorganized and moves executive branch commissions and boards, etc., into proposed Title 2.2. As noted above, several chapters from Title 9 that were boards, councils, etc., created in the legislative branch have been moved to Title 30--General Assembly. The effect of this substantial reorganization is the creation of proposed Title 9.1--Commonwealth's Public Safety. As its name indicates, this proposed Title contains chapters relative to the Department of Criminal Justice Services and fire and police protection generally, taken exclusively from Titles 2.1 and 9.
