NVTC Outlines 2014 Legislative PrioritiesOn Monday, Jan. 6, NVTC Chairman Sudhakar Kesavan, chairman and CEO of ICF International, and NVTC President and CEO Bobbie Kilberg sent letters to all members of the Virginia General Assembly and to the governor-elect, lieutenant governor-elect, attorney general-elect and senior officials of the McAuliffe administration outlining NVTC's 2014 legislative priorities. While the letter acknowledges that policymakers will be making many difficult decisions in adopting budget amendments and policies that meet Virginia's needs and address current revenue challenges, it also highlights the critical nature of further advancing the gains Virginia has made in building a globally branded technology business climate in 2014 budget and policy actions.
