The keynote speaker will be Arlington Delegate Alfonso Lopez, Chairman of the bipartisan Virginia Environment and Renewable Energy Caucus.  Sponsors will serve a lunch buffet and distribute the Environmental Briefing Book.

 

In 2015, among other issues, ASNV weighed in on bills that encourage "community cats," also called "feral cats," "cat colonies" and "unowned cats."  Delegate Kay Kory, sponsor of one of the bills in the House of Delegates last year has told ASNV that she will not introduce cat legislation in 2016.  Others are likely to, however, Assembly observers say.
