Jobs and the Economy

Maintaining a competitive tax environment with reasonable regulations is the best way to ensure a strong and vibrant economy that encourages job and market driven wage growth. Under Republican leadership in the General Assembly, Virginia regularly ranked as the best state for business due to our reasonable tax and regulatory environment and strong education system.

Unfortunately, under one-party Democratic control we are realizing a tsunami of new regulatory policies that will make it harder for entrepreneurs to start and grow a business, increase the cost of doing business through additional fees, legal burdens and government mandated wage and benefit requirements. We must not become a smaller version of California or New York where businesses and families are fleeing. Rest assured, I will continue to push for policies that make it easier, not harder, for small businesses and Virginia families to be successful.
