Hampton Roads Peninsula Elected Officials Support Senate Budget

Newport News, Va.—Thursday, April 14th, elected officials from across the Peninsula will hold a press conference to speak about their support of the Senate budget, which focuses on public education and economic relief for working families – such as the Earned Income Tax Credit which puts more money in the hands of working families, affordable housing, greater pay raises for teachers and funding for at-risk schools.

Local governments and school divisions are staring down their own budget deadlines and the inaction in Richmond has left them hanging, unable to make necessary decisions. Despite this, Governor Youngkin and House Republicans are willing to bring the budget process to a stop rather than funding these critical items for Virginia families.
