Governor Glenn Youngkin’s Statement on the Passage of Virginia’s 2023 Budget Bill

RICHMOND, VA - Following the General Assembly’s passage of HB6001 during special session, Governor Youngkin issued the following statement: 


“I appreciate the hard work of the General Assembly and our budget conferees to send a budget to my desk. While the process took longer than needed, more than $1 billion in tax relief is on the way to Virginia veterans, working families and businesses. Additionally, this collaborative effort ensured the funding of our shared priorities: investing in students and teachers, supporting our law enforcement community and transforming the way behavioral health care is delivered in the Commonwealth. There’s more work to be done, but I applaud the General Assembly for their work today,” said Governor Glenn Youngkin.
