Throughout my time in Congress, my number one priority has always been enacting pro-growth policies to provide hardworking people across Virginia’s Fifth District and around the country with opportunities for economic growth and job creation.
While unemployment remains unacceptably high, our communities have missed out on opportunities to bring major employers to the areas because unnecessary federal regulations have been standing in the way of progress. Toyota recently began assembling cars in Mississippi. Caterpillar is hiring 1,400 people for its new facility in Georgia. Boeing chose to invest billions of dollars in South Carolina.
We need to eliminate the federal roadblocks that prevent communities in Central and Southside Virginia from competing for these vital jobs.
