Torian Recognized by Chamber
On Wednesday, April 18, the Virginia Chamber of Commerce recognized Delegate Luke Torian with The Economic Competitiveness Award, which recognizes legislators who worked to improve Virginia’s business climate during the 2012 legislative session. Delegate Torian sponsored legislation that gives local governments regulatory flexibility needed to attract and retain businesses engaged in providing services in support of national defense.
After the press conference when asked to comment Torian said “I am honored to be receiving the Economic Competitiveness award from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. It is my hope that we see many positive developments from the passage of HB 406”. Torian said, HB406 will “allow companies to know that we are serious about them being a part of our community.”
Also on Wednesday, The Virginia Chamber of Commerce released its 2012 Legislative Report Card. In addition to grading legislators based on their pro-business voting record, the Legislative Award recognizes legislators for their support of initiatives that enable Virginia to maintain its distinction as one of the best states in the nation for business.
“The Legislative Report Card allows us to recognize and honor legislators who uphold free market principles and support the interests of the business community,” said Barry DuVal, President and CEO of the Virginia Chamber.
