House Republicans remained focused on legislation geared towards creating jobs, protecting health care and education as well as promoting good energy policy.

The session concluded with completing the reconvene session during which six of Governor Kaine’s vetos were overridden.

Republican led legislation will help steer Virginia back towards prosperity.

Speaker Bill Howell had this to say at the end of the session:

“This year, our primary focus has been on approving measures that will expedite Virginia‟s return to prosperity,” noted Speaker Howell. “Today‟s actions again highlighted the commitment of House Republicans to keep Virginia the best state in the nation in which to do business. Moreover, our actions earlier this year to expedite higher education construction projects, accelerate bonding for major transportation initiatives, and direct additional funds for tourism and marketing will aid economic growth sooner and help create more jobs.
