Description: Unrecorded


The Staunton Convention of August 1816 resulted in compromise legislation at that winter's Assembly wherein the representation of the western counties in Virginia Senate was made more equitable in exchange for alterations to the taxes laid on improved land in the state, so reducing tax burdens in the eastern counties (Chap. V of Acts of November 1816 Assembly); after two years in effect, this Assembly here moved to address complaints about that law. No copy known extant; Thomas Ritchie, the public printer, was ordered on January 28, 1819, to print 250 copies of this bill for the use of the Assembly, so the attribution here to the partnership then conducting Ritchie's press.
