NVTC Signs Letter with Virginia Chamber of Commerce Urging Virginia Senators to Pass Budget Legislation

On Monday, March 5, NVTC joined the Virginia Chamber of Commerce and 19 other state and national business organizations in sending a letter to members of the Virginia Senate urging them to reach a timely agreement on the state budget.

In the letter, the organizations outline the risks of not having a budget passed by the end of the legislative session on Saturday, March 10, including jeopardizing Virginia’s AAA bond rating and status as the best state for business. The letter also explains that Virginia’s budget uncertainty could affect investment decisions by businesses and potentially discourage companies from locating in the Commonwealth.

NVTC will participate in a press conference with the Virginia Chamber and other signatory organizations in Richmond on March 7.
