Last November, Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin missed seeing Republicans take control of the state legislature by only a few hundred votes in the state House and 2,000 votes in the state Senate.
But that hasn’t slowed down his efforts to lower state taxes, which were cut by $5 billion in his first year in office. His new budget message calls for a 12 percent income tax cut for all Virginians as well as an end to the state’s property tax on vehicles. “This most hated tax belongs in your trash can, not your mailbox,” Youngkin told legislators. He promises to barnstorm the state to build pressure on vulnerable Democrats to pass his proposals.
Kudos to Governor Youngkin for continuing to promote pro-growth policies that are attracting job creators from all over the country!
