Summary as introduced:
Virginia Council on Minority Affairs. Creates the Virginia Council on Minority Affairs which shall determine the status and needs of Virginia’s minority populations. The Council is directed to identify the needs of Virginia’s minority populations and develop a strategic plan for the overall implementation of recommendations and legislative initiatives which are designed to address their needs and move such persons into the mainstream of society. Recent population projections indicate that the demographics of Virginia’s population are becoming more culturally, racially, and ethnically diverse. Such population shifts, composed of immigrants, persons of impoverished backgrounds, persons with limited English proficiency, and racial and ethnic minorities, indicate the need to plan and assess the impact on state resources, local infrastructures, economic development, education, health and social services, transportation, and other state services.

This bill is a recommendation of the Joint Subcommittee Studying the Status and Needs of African American Males in Virginia.
