General Assembly

The Virginia General Assembly dates from the establishment of the House of Burgesses at Jamestown in 1619.

It is heralded by Virginians as the "oldest continuous law-making body in the New World." It was then and is now a legislative body comprised of “citizen legislators,” elected representatives that serve in a part-time capacity meeting full-time responsibilities.
