Richmond, VA – House Democratic Leader David Toscano and Caucus Chair Charniele Herring issued the following statement in response to CNBC’s Top States for Business 2018 ranking, which placed Virginia in the fourth spot.
“Under Governor Northam’s leadership and an increasingly Democratic legislature, Virginia is once again rising to the top of the best states to do business. For our economy to thrive, we must make Virginia a great place for both business and employees. The 2019 budget, passed with the leadership of House and Senate Democrats and signed by Governor Northam, prioritizes job creation, education and vocational training, and expanded health care access to create an economy that works for everyone. We will continue to see Virginia rise in rankings as we work to improve the lives of our constituents and their families.”
