1,033 bills were introduced in the 2021 special session of the Virginia General Assembly. This was a
complicated year for statistical analysis because the regular session was limited to its Constitutional 30-days as
compared to the customary 45-day session in odd numbered years. So, a special session was called by the
Governor to begin on day 31 of the session.
