GOVERNOR'S VETO

 

    Pursuant to Article V, Section 6, of the Constitution of Virginia, I veto House Bill 1836. This bill violates the Virginia Constitution by impairing existing agreements and arrangements among Spotsylvania County, Homeowners Associations, developers, and VDOT. It also would entail the assumption of obligations of a private party by the Commonwealth. I encourage the interested parties to resolve this issue at the local level.
     
    Accordingly, I veto this bill.
