Post-Session Legislative Breakfast Held

Wednesday, May 4th, 2011

The Chamber of Commerce’s annual Post-Session Legislative Breakfast was held this morning and was another successful event. We appreciate Senators Mark Obenshain and Emmett Hanger, Delegates Steve Landes and Tony Wilt giving their views of the session and what it means for business in The Valley. Tori Williams, Legislative Liaison for VA West (a coalition of I-81 Chambers) spoke on specific legislation of interest to the business community in general. The budget, transportation, economic development, accelerated sales tax relief, right-to-work and small business were all topics of discussion. If you missed it, catch the story on WHSV, Channel 3 or in the DNR in the morning.
