RICHMOND, Va (WTVR) — In just days a number of bills passed during this year’s General Assembly session and signed into law, will officially go into effect.  Some of the laws created quite a stir and put Virginia under the national microscope.

It wasn’t long ago when lawmakers were at the Capitol discussing and debating several pieces of legislation.  And the newly approved laws will go into effect Sunday, July 1.
