Orrock's official website listed the following issues:
- Cutting Wasteful Spending
"Bobby believes that the government must live within its means and held the line on the growth of the state budget. Since 2007, the General Assembly has cut spending by nearly $7 billion, maintained core services, and balanced the budget every year without raising income taxes."
- Historic Transportation Improvements
"Working with Governor McDonnell and legislators from both parties, Bobby helped pass a major transportation improvement plan that changes our current funding stream from being based on a per gallon tax to a sales tax approach that keeps pace with the economy."
- Reducing the Tax Burden on Hard-Working Virginians
"He has supported legislation that would reduce the sales tax on food, eliminate the hurtful estate tax, increase the per-child tax credit for educational purposes, and create long-term tax credits for health insurance for senior citizens."
- No Medicaid Expansion without Reforms
"With the implementation of legislation from Washington looming, Bobby has worked with Democrats and Republicans to establish the Medicaid Innovation and Reform Commission to oversee the implementation of Medicaid reforms."
- Reforming and Expanding Education
"Bobby strongly supported the Higher Education Opportunity Act, which would expand Virginians’ access to college while making it more affordable. As a public school teacher, Bobby has supported legislation that would dedicate more of our hard earned dollars to the classroom instead of in the administrative bureaucracy."
