Lawmakers Block Transparency Bill Aimed at Amazon and Similar Deals

Lawmakers unanimously killed a bill on Wednesday aimed at shedding light on economic packages Virginia offers big employers like Amazon.

The bill from Republican Delegate Michael Webert would have required details of such deals to be disclosed publicly at least 21 days before they could be signed by the governor.

“The public deserves to know what we're doing with their money and they deserve to know before the deal is finalized,” Webert said.
