- Supporting People Through Hard Times
Excerpt: "Getting our economy moving again through private sector job creation is vitally important. During my terms as Delegate, Virginia was recognized as the “Best State for Business.” I’ve defended our right to work laws while supporting legislation to extend unemployment benefits from 26 weeks to 59 weeks through $62.5 million in “no strings attached” federal funding."
- Transportation Improvements Without Higher Taxes
Excerpt: "As your Delegate, I understand that getting our economy moving involves getting traffic moving and we should use the future growth of our regional economy to help fund those expansions. I have sponsored key legislation that will pay for better roads, and these proposals have been adopted by Bob McDonnell in his comprehensive transportation plan as he runs for Governor."
- Health Care
Excerpt: "Making sure quality, affordable health care is accessible is a key concern of mine. I have supported legislation that promotes choice and efficiency in health care while protecting the quality of care citizens expect and deserve."
- Closing Loopholes for Payday Lenders
Excerpt: "This is the fourth year in a row that I have stood up to fight against predatory payday lenders. The 2008 Payday Loan Act, HB 12 which I patroned, enacted strong restrictions on payday loans to eliminate rollover loans and multiple loans that were snowballing people into an inescapable cycle of debt."
Excerpt: "I support an “all of the above” strategy that encourages conservation while making full use of solar, nuclear, biofuels, and the exploration and use of offshore sources of natural gas and oil, all of which can develop significant jobs for our area."
- HB 1579 Transportation funding, etc; certain revenues attributable to economic growth in Hampton Roads, etc.
- HB 2077 Land use actions; extension of approvals to address housing crisis.
- HB 2597 Alcoholic beverage control; ABC Board to adopt regulation that require off-premise retail licensees.
