On Monday, May 13, 2013, for the first time in almost 27 years, Governor Bob McDonnell signed the state’s first comprehensive transportations funding plan. Known as HB 2313, this new package will generate $6 billion in transportation. Following almost three decades of inaction, this bi-partisan bill is a victory for all of Virginia.
With the passage of this bill, our citizens will be able to spend more time with their families enjoying the many benefits this great Commonwealth has to offer rather than sitting in traffic. In addition, this ensures that Virginia’s economy can grow and that businesses will have the infrastructure they need to create the good-paying jobs Virginians deserve.
