The Virginia General Assembly convened last week and one of the major initiatives for this year’s short session is jobs. With federal sequestration impacting both the Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads economies, the legislature and the Governor’s Office are trying to develop new programs which will help to spur economic growth across the Commonwealth. Here are some of the key bills:

While most of us are focusing on the upcoming holiday season and the numerous responsibilities that come with end-of-year planning, Virginia elected officials are busily preparing for the 2015 General Assembly session. We are in the heart of the prefiling calendar which means that members of both the House of Representatives and Senate have started introducing legislation which they hope to introduce next year for a vote. If last week’s elections taught us anything in Virginia, it is that both sides of the aisle are going to be pushing hard for their specific agenda – even at the state level. Republicans believe that the closeness of the vote between Sen. Mark Warner and challenger Ed Gillespie, coupled with their stronghold on Virginia’s congressional delegation have given them a mandate to push a more conservative agenda. Meanwhile, Democrats are energized to do the same since their party controls the state’s top three seats of power.

The official announcement today that Stone Brewing Co. has selected Richmond for the location of its East Coast production facility is a significant economic development victory for the City and the region. Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced the deal this afternoon at the Governor’s Mansion. Stone’s Richmond plant will be located in the Fulton section of the city’s East End and is expected to be a catalyst for redevelopment and additional investment in the area.
