From DPVA Chair Charniele Herring:
Richmond – Today the General Assembly passed Governor Bob McDonnell’s amendments to the historic transportation compromise. Democratic Party of Virginia Chair Delegate Charniele Herring released the following statement on its passage:
“I am encouraged that Democrats and Republicans were able to work with Governor McDonnell and pass this historic transportation bill despite Ken Cuccinelli’s multiple attempts to derail it,” said DPVA Chair, Del. Charniele Herring. “This transportation bill isn’t perfect, but it will fund the construction and maintenance we need to reduce gridlock, grow our economy and improve Virginians’ quality of life.
“Today’s vote should be an important lesson for Virginians as we draw closer to electing our next Governor. While leaders on both sides of the aisle were working together to get results, Ken Cuccinelli tried repeatedly to torpedo the bipartisan compromise from the sidelines. Virginians can’t afford to give Ken Cuccinelli four years as Governor to stand in the way of mainstream solutions that run afoul of his extreme ideological agenda.”
