Mullins: Gov. McDonnell's Transportation Plan is Innovative, Bold, and Rooted in Common Sense

Statement of RPV Chairman Pat Mullins:

"Transportation is an issue that Virginians have been dealing with for more than a decade now. The system our Commonwealth has in place right now is quite simply inadequate.  The plan Governor McDonnell has put forward recognizes and corrects that fact.

At the same time, it removes a regressive tax on a commodity that the vast majority of Virginians must purchase. The Governor's plan is bold and innovative, and based in the common-sense conservative principle that higher revenues should flow from a growing economy, not higher tax rates.

This plan fixes the maintenance deficit, removes a regressive tax, and puts transportation funding on an upward trajectory based on economic growth, not ever-rising tax rates. I look forward to working with Governor McDonnell and the General Assembly to see this vision enacted into law."
