Summary as introduced:

Virginia Code Commission; duties. Limits the duties of the Virginia Code Commission relating to the codification of laws enacted by the General Assembly to codifying only those laws for which the General Assembly has expressed its intent for such laws to be codified through the title of the bills relating to such laws. The bill also prohibits the Commission from excluding from the Code of Virginia a law for which the General Assembly has expressed its intent for the same to be codified through the title of the bill. In addition, beginning with the 2017 Regular Session of the General Assembly, the Commission will be required to arrange for the printing and publication of all enactments appearing in bills that become law. Such enactments will be printed and published as they appear in such bills. Currently, the Commission is charged with maintaining a Code of the general and permanent statutes of the Commonwealth. In carrying out this charge, the Commission may codify laws for which the title of the related bill did not provide for any change to the Code (Section 1 bills) and may exclude from the Code laws for which the title of the related bill actually provided for changes to the Code.
