Virginia Chamber of Commerce CEO on Gillespie tax reform proposal


taxVirginia Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Barry DuVal comments on the tax reform proposal from Republican candidate for governor Ed Gillespie.

“We commend Ed Gillespie for recognizing the connection between our tax policies and economic growth. The Virginia Chamber’s long-term blueprint for growth calls for changes to modernize Virginia’s tax structure. We have dropped in recent business tax rankings as other states have undertaken tax reform to make their economies more competitive. The proposed approach to eliminating the burdensome and anti-business M&T tax along with BPOL has merit. We look forward to learning more about the plan and we look forward to working with state public policy makers on comprehensive tax reform to help Virginia be more competitive in job creation.”
