SB 352 Nelsonite; designating as state rock, etc.

Introduced by: R. Creigh Deeds | all patrons    ...    notes | add to my profiles

SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)

Official emblems and designations. Designates Nelsonite as the state rock of Virginia. The bill also adds to § 1-510, which consolidates official state emblems and designations, two designations—the Northern Cardinal as the state bird and the American Dogwood as the state tree, adopted as HJR 9 (1950) and HJR 6 (1956), respectively—that had been inadvertently omitted. The bill removes the emergency medical services museum, "To the Rescue" located in the City of Roanoke, from the official state designations list as this museum has been closed for 10 years.
