“The investments into public safety, K-12 and higher education, the healthcare safety net, and economic development demonstrates that the House of Delegates is leading on the important issues facing Virginians.” – Speaker Howell
“The House budget is a conservative, responsible, and structurally-balanced budget. Our budget invests in the core functions of government while protecting precious taxpayer resources.” – Chairman Jones
For the second straight year, the Republican led General Assembly advanced our legislative priorities, crafted a conservative and responsible state budget, and worked diligently to complete its work ahead of schedule.
The Virginia House of Delegates Committee on Appropriations proposed a two-year state budget Sunday that includes no tax or fee increases, takes steps to eliminate future liabilities, and makes strategic investments in K-12 and higher education.
The House budget will be conservative and responsible. Our first priorities are to structurally balance the budget without Washington-style gimmicks and make responsible decisions that put Virginia on solid financial footing.
