NACDL News: NACDL Heartened by Support for Criminal Discovery Reform in Virginia

The Virginia Senate passed SB 1563 by a vote of 39-1 on Feb. 7, 2017, but the bill was tabled (by voice vote) in a House subcommittee hearing on February 15, effectively killing it this session. NACDL had urged the Virginia House of Delegates to pass criminal discovery reform legislation to increase fairness and access to justice in the Commonwealth.
