VACOLAO, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

VACOLAO opposes legislation like this that imposes unnecessary and burdensome additional regulatory or administrative requirements on Virginia residents, without any proven need for such burdens or corresponding proven positive benefit for the taxpayers or the community.
