Republican House Appropriations Chair Chris Jones on McAuliffe tax proposals

state-capitol2Virginia House Appropriations Committee Chairman S. Chris Jones (R-Suffolk) issued the following statement on Governor McAuliffe’s tax proposal.

“The House will evaluate the Governor’s tax proposal after his full budget is released on the 17th. It would be premature to comment without the context of the full budget. Everything within the budget is a puzzle piece, and until we have all the pieces there is not much to say. However, it would be unwise for the Governor to predicate new spending or initiatives based on so-called savings from Medicaid expansion. The House position on that issue is very clear. The Governor and the legislature have worked productively on the budget in the past when we have set Medicaid expansion aside, and it is my hope we can continue to do that.”
