Fauquier, VA – Today, Delegate Michael J. Webert released the following statement regarding CNBC’s recent article that Virginia is America’s top state for business in 2019.
“I am extremely happy to see Virginia named as the number one place to do business in America! It’s exciting to see my bill, House Bill 883 (HB 883), highlighted and credited with contributing to our economic revival.”
“We worked very long and hard on HB 883. Cutting burdensome regulations and creating an economic environment where business can thrive is essential to our economy.”
“CNBC also highlighted several Republican-led initiatives to improve Virginia’s workforce through credentialing programs and affordable technology degrees and our strong public education system.”
“However, let’s set the record straight: Governor Northam also supported the Democrats efforts to pass, according to the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, $17 trillion worth of bad business bills that would have killed over 150,000 jobs.”
“That’s not the path forward for Virginia.”
“If you want more economic prosperity, fewer burdensome regulations, and a better business environment, the choice for this election is clear. My Republican colleagues and I are counting on your support on November 5th to keep Virginia moving forward.”
