Passed the Senate 40-0 on 2 March. All that remains is for the Governor to sign it into law. It would take effect on 1 July 2010.

VIRGINIA--HB322 Rabies Medical Exemption Clause passed the House and Senate and has gone to Governor McDonnell for signature. Delegate Plum's office (703-758-9733) said it should be effective before mid-April!

Interesting. That's unusual. Most do not kick in until the beginning of the fiscal year.

Perhaps the assistant in Delegate Plum's office misunderstood me or I misunderstood her, but I did ask when the law would become effective and she said when the Governor signed it into law and she expected it would be before the end of the session, which is mid-April.

No, it could well be. Signed bills normally become effective on 1 July, unless otherwise specified. It isn't noted in the bill as passed, but it could certainly be enacted sooner. It's just not common.
