Virginia GOP Unveils Economic Plan

Republican leaders in Virginia’s House of Delegates have now unveiled their agenda for improving the state’s economy.

72nd District Delegate Jimmy Massey Chairs the House Republicans policy working group - he says their 4-point plan will balance Virginia’s budget shortfall without tax or fee increases. The plan calls for cutting state regulations by 35% through a new division in the Department of Planning and Budget.

A bill from Rappahanock-area Delegate Michael Webert would also keep state agencies from requiring contractors to pay workers according to prevailing wage rates.
