Budget Progress to Report from Richmond

Posted by Kenny Alexander on February 09, 2016

With broad bipartisan support, the McAuliffe-backed Virginia Growth and Opportunity Act (SB449), known as Go Virginia, today made it out of the Senate Finance Committee on which I serve. The legislation now makes its way to the Senate floor.

This is going to be a game changer for Hampton Roads.

Our economy is too tied to defense spending and public sector jobs – this is an opportunity for us to diversify.

GO Virginia incentivizes localities to not only create jobs, but incentivizes the private sector to make the capital investments we need to move Virginia forward. I am glad that we are changing the paradigm.
