In 2010 the General Assembly put $130 million in new fees and business tax credit cuts into Virginia’s budget on the last day to meet with little debate or publicity. None of the $130 million in fee and tax increases passed Virginia’s Assembly on separate record votes. Members claimed they “had to vote for the hikes” or risk shutting Virginia’s government down.
Citizens reject Washington politicians who do this. Why accept them from Richmond Republicans who voted for fee and tax hikes as part of the Budget?
Support Delegate Bob Marshall’s Amendment to the Virginia Constitution for the 2011 Assembly.
