House Republican Leader Todd Gilbert issued the following statement:

“While the budget isn’t what a Republican House of Delegates would have produced, the document signed by the Governor today is a significant improvement over the budget sent to him at the end of the Regular session. 

“Today’s budget contains no tax increases, and does not require that Virginia rejoin the failed Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. It reflects compromise, with both sides dealing in good faith to meet our most basic responsibility. Once again, Virginia’s leaders have demonstrated that Richmond is not Washington. 

“Republicans remain committed to making life more affordable for hard-working Virginia families.”
