Delegate Comstock Receives An "A" Rating From Virginia Chamber of Commerce

Delegate Comstock Awarded "A" Rating from Virginia Chamber of Commerce on May 8, 2013.

McLean, VA -
Delegate Comstock (R-34) received an "A" Rating from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce on their 2013 Legislative Report Card at the annual Chamber Legislative Awards Dinner on Wednesday, May 8.

Speaking about the award, Delegate Comstock said, "It's a privilege to work with Virginia's business leaders at the Chamber and I'm proud to receive another "A" rating from the Virginia Chamber for championing policies that foster job growth, increase competition and provide more jobs for the citizens of the Commonwealth."

"I thank the Virginia Chamber of Commerce for working with us in the General Assembly to promote and preserve free enterprise and for helping to make Virginia the best state to do business. I look forward to continuing to work with the Chamber to keep Virginia the top destination for jobs."

For the second year in a row, Delegate Comstock received an "A" rating from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. Last year she was also recognized by the Virginia Chamber of Commerce with "The Free Enterprise Award" which honors a legislator who championed free market principles during the 2012 legislative session.

This 2012 award recognized Delegate Comstock's passage of HB 33, "The Fair and Open Competition in Government Contracting Act." This bill guarantees competition and a level playing field for all Virginia workers and businesses - non-union and union alike. This legislation banned forced union project labor agreements and protects the 96 percent of Virginia workers who are non-union, and commits that Virginia workers and taxpayers will not be robbed through crony contracting. This legislation was essential in helping get the costs for Rail to Dulles under control and has recently been credited with helping bring the winning bid for Phase II of Dulles Rail in at $300-$400 million less than had been anticipated.

The Virginia Chamber of Commerce is the state's largest business advocacy organization with more than 13,000 members. As the voice for business, the Chamber works in the legislative, regulatory and political arenas to act as a catalyst for enhancing Virginia's economic competitiveness and pro-business climate.
