NFIB Virginia State Director Nicole Riley released the following statement today in response to Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin’s pledge to remove Virginia from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative:
“Virginia’s small businesses are managing several obstacles such as the labor shortage and supply chain disruptions. Small business owners need lawmakers to enact policies that promote job growth, not deter it, as they work on recovering their businesses to pre-crisis levels.
“By removing Virginia from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin is sparing small business owners from an increased cost in their electric bills and other expenses they simply cannot afford right now. Small business owners thank Gov.-elect Glenn Youngkin for taking this important step.”
