Reporting Requirements


Page 238, after line 24, insert:

"4. a) Except for the reports required under Item 479.10 of this act, Notwithstanding any other provision of law or of any provision of this Act, the Governor may delay or defer the submission of any report or study that is required by the Code of Virginia or by this act of a state entity, including agencies, boards, commissions, and authorities, and that is due prior to June 30, 2021, if in the opinion of the Governor, meeting the reporting deadline is either not possible or is impractical due to impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the reporting entity. Reporting entities seeking approval of the Governor to grant such a delay must submit a written request to the Governor no less than 30 days prior to the reporting deadline. Upon receiving approval from the Governor, the reporting entity shall provide the parties designated to receive the report with notice of an approved delay. This notice shall be in lieu of the required report until such time as the required report is submitted. Any report receiving approval for delayed submission shall be submitted as soon as the reporting entity can resume normal business operations and can complete the work necessary to compile the report; however, no report shall be submitted later than 12 months from the original reporting requirement.

b) The Governor may establish guidelines for the submission and approval process described in paragraph a) above."


(This amendment makes technical adjustments to reporting requirements.)
