Video, Slides from VA House Appropriations Committee Presentations – Ditching Youngkin’s Regressive Tax Proposals, Requiring that Virginia Rejoin RGGI, etc.

See below for video and a bunch of slides from this afternoon’s budget presentations to the Virginia House Appropriations committee. A few highlights include removal of most of Glenn Youngkin’s regressive/ridiculous tax cuts for the wealthy; language requiring that Virginia rejoin the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative; increased funding for Metro; removal of Hyde Amendment language; etc. Good stuff, and presumably all of this will pass the Democratic-controlled General Assembly; the question really being what happens after that – will Youngkin take a hatchet to this via his line-item veto or will he try to actually work with Democrats for a change? Stay tuned…but definitely don’t hold your breath waiting for a more reasonable Youngkin.
