Governor Vetoes Ramadan’s Pro-Jobs Bill
Dulles, VA | March 28th, 2015 –Delegate David I. Ramadan (R-87th District; Loudoun) issued the following statement Friday on Governor Terry McAuliffe’s veto of House Bill 2395:
“I am disappointed Governor McAuliffe has vetoed this commonsense piece of legislation. This year was one of the most successful and productive General Assembly sessions in recent memory. Working together, Republicans and Democrats, including Governor McAuliffe passed a responsible budget ahead of schedule and made significant reforms to strengthen our schools. This bill would have made the session all the more successful,” said Ramadan.
“Governor McAuliffe veto of my House Bill 2395 is unfortunate. This bill would have prohibited prevailing wage provisions in public contracts. Prevailing wage provisions drive up costs and reduce competition, which stifles our economy and economic growth. Governor McAuliffe has often stated his number one job is to protect and grow Virginia’s economy. This bill would have helped do that.”
