Economic Development

The 2016 General Assembly session also saw progress on broad-ranging economic development and revitalization efforts.  I was proud to co-sponsor HB834 and HB846, the Growth Opportunity “GO” Virginia bills, which will create new economic incentives to stimulate more development and to bring more jobs to our communities. As you know, our ports continue to be an economic engine for our region, and for the Commonwealth. I am particularly proud that the budget included $350,000,000.00 in new investments to expand the Port of Virginia’s operations in Norfolk.  This long-overdue investment will insure that our region benefits from significant new trade opportunities, economic development, and new career opportunities, all of which are tied to our ports.
