Some local Virginia lawmakers are considering a measure that would limit the amount of people at home gatherings.

FOX News Radio's Tonya J. Powers reports:

"A lawsuit waiting to happen" -- that's what one Fairfax County, Virginia supervisor says about a plan to ban "frequent, large gatherings in neighborhood homes there". Public comment hearings start on Wednesday.

The proposed zoning ordinance limits "group assembly" at homes to 49 people a day. If the law passes, those gatherings wouldn't be allowed more often than three times in a 40-day period.

County officials say they've gotten complaints about group meetings in homes.

Supervisor Pat Herrity says only six such complaints were received last year.
