During its 1998 Session, the Virginia General Assembly passed forty-three bills related to technology that were signed into law. Of these, six bills were proposed by the Joint Commission on Technology and Science ("JCOTS"). This article summarizes several enacted bills and provides reference numbers for each bill discussed in the 1998 Acts of Assembly ("1998 Acts"). Given the breadth, depth, and speed of the technological revolution, the purpose of this article is to discuss succinctly the most significant 1998 legislative actions related to technology in areas of substantive law, practice, and procedure.
