“One of my top priorities in Richmond is to make sure that our business community has the resources that they need to grow, expand, and prosper. This means creating a favorable business environment which gets rid of burdensome regulations and red tape and allows start-ups and small businesses to do what they do best- innovate. I am honored to receive this high rating from the Chamber for the work that my colleagues and I did this Session to help boost Virginia’s standing as the best state in the nation to do business and earn a living. Really, it’s about jobs”, said Lingamfelter.
According to their website, the mission of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce is to be a non-partisan, business advocacy organization that works in the legislative, regulatory and political arenas to act as the catalyst for positive change in all areas of economic development and competitiveness for the Commonwealth of Virginia.
