- Keeping Taxes Low for all Virginians
Excerpt: "Delegate Scott’s work for local Virginia and concern for consumers is second to none. He has presented and supported bills that assist the smaller businesses of our communities while continuing to promote central Virginia’s culture and encourage competition throughout the state."
- Supporting Agriculture and Small Business
Excerpt: "Delegate Scott understands that small businesses are the core of the economy of the 30th District and the Commonwealth. In the 2008 General Assembly session, he carried successful legislation (HB 728) to make it easier for small businesses and the insurance agents who serve them to shop for health insurance. Agriculture is also a significant contributor to our local economy and remains a major land use. Delegate Scott’s efforts to assist new and growing farm wineries (HB 1399, 2008 and HB 2071, 2009) are part of his commitment to Virginia agribusiness."
- Protecting Our Traditional Family Values
Excerpt: "While in Richmond, Delegate Scott consistently champions the family values we all share. He respects the sanctity of marriage, continues to vote for responsible pro-life legislation and supports responsible safety in homes, schools, and on our highways. During his second term, Delegate Scott sponsored legislation that keeps our children safe on the road and improves school bus safety . This year he carried successful legislation (HB 2070) to give the parents of twins or multiples input into classroom placement decisions."
- Reducing Congestion and Building Roads
Excerpt: "In both regular sessions and special sessions, Delegate Scott has supported efforts for comprehensive and innovative transportation solutions, including funding for rail and transit. Delegate Scott is recognized by his colleagues for his work to improve Virginia’s revenue-sharing program for highway construction, a key element of transportation progress in our region."
- Defending the Virginia State Constitution
Excerpt: "In his second term, Delegate Scott voted in favor of restricting the government’s ability to confiscate land under eminent domain thereby increasing the rights of property owners. He supported efforts addressing the challenge of illegal immigration in a practical yet forceful manner including co-patroning legislation which would make federal illegal alien status unlawful in Virginia. In the 2008 session, he co-patroned legislation (HB 470) to give local governments additional tools to deal with loitering in the rights of way of highways."
Scott's answers to the Virginia State Legislative Election 2003 National Political Awareness Test are available. When asked his top priorities, he stated, "My highest priority is to eliminate the estate tax in Virginia. This tax unfairly penalizes family farms and small businesses that are the backbone of our economy. This should be a key element to restructuring the Commonwealth's Tax Code. Secondly, I will work to maintain a positive regulatory climate in order to attract new businesses & grow our existing business base."
