House Speaker Todd Gilbert issued the following statement:
“Today’s announcement is encouraging, and I thank Chairman Knight, the House and Senate conferees, and staff for their hard work over these past six months.
“While the conferees have reached a deal to present to the General Assembly, both chambers of the legislature and the public still need to review a final agreement. Additional discussions regarding a potential special session will also need to occur over the coming week.
“We’re closer than ever before to providing real tax relief to Virginia families who are being squeezed by inflation and other skyrocketing costs, and providing historic levels of support for our schools.”
