2018 General Assembly Session

The 2018 Virginia General Assembly Session began on Wednesday, January 10, 2018 and is moving very rapidly. HBAV identified 134 pieces of legislation that would have a direct impact on building homes in Virginia. Examples of legislation include:
  • Impact fees on all new homes.
  • An effort to repeal the proffer reform legislation passed in 2016.
  • Moving the Fire Prevention Code away from the current building code process, opening the door for mandatory sprinklers in all new homes.
  • Allowing all localities to adopt affordable dwelling unit ordinances.
