The 2021 Virginia General Assembly is currently in session. We are highlighting a number of bills that have conservation, wildlife, or habitat impacts. We encourage you to contact your legislators, and the appropriate members of the Agriculture, Conservation, and Natural Resources committees, if applicable. We have included a link at the bottom of this page to find your legislator, and contact information for Loudoun representatives and the Natural Resource Committee Members for the House and Senate.
Here are a few tips for creating a compelling message to your legislators:
- Introduce – Briefly describe your position on the legislation, policy, or topic.
- Persuade – Tell your personal story, and how the topic relates to you. Your story is impactful.
- Inform – Provide background information and data on the topic.
- Conclude – Restate your message with a call to action.
We are a member of the Virginia Conservation Network. Use the links below to find talking points for Budget, House and Senate Bills, and a House Joint Resolution. These talking points are derived from materials produced by VCN and their members. We have highlighted links to additional talking points for these bills as well.
