At the end of the 2017 Virginia General Assembly session, the Chair of the House Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee, Delegate Bobby Orrock, convened a meeting of COPN stakeholders. Delegate Orrock and key leaders on the House HWI committee expressed frustration with the lack of movement on comprehensive COPN reform the past few years. As a result, they have indicated they are ready to move forward with reviewing individual project exemption bills during the 2018 legislative session. They have told us that Virginia is "open for business" and anyone who has a specific project that would need a COPN exemption should pursue legislation.
