Issues

Campaign themes

Bulova's re-election campaign website lists his positions on a number of issues, including:[5]

  • Transportation - "In addition to new construction, we must adequately maintain our existing infrastructure. The current funding formula not only under-funds maintenance, it is also unfair to Northern Virginia."
  • Energy - "I successfully passed HB 1994 to increase Virginia’s renewable energy goal to 15% by the year 2025. This legislation, and others like it, will protect consumers in the long-run from volatile energy prices caused by our reliance on fossil fuels."
  • Illegal immigration - "I have consistently supported common-sense measures to strengthen penalties against businesses that knowingly violate our immigration laws and to ensure that our State agencies are sharing information on immigration status."

Bulova's answers to the Virginia State Legislative Election 2007 National Political Awareness Test are available. He did not answer the question asking his top priorities.[6]
