2018 Crossover Accomplishments

Streamlining Government Regulations

Regulations hinder the entrepreneurial spirit of Virginians and can create burdensome hurdles for business to operate. When implemented effectively, occupational licenses and regulations can help protect consumers and businesses. However, the weight of these requirements has grown untenable. House Republicans are committed to eliminating onerous regulations and creating a pro-growth environment.
