PetitionCoLA Alert... ONE LAST CHANCE to Kill the biggest tax hike in VA History




On the HB2313 substitute



Let your Legislators know how angry you are about this huge, unnecessary, tax hike!


Tell them this is their last chance to show you that they made a mistake;

that they are not a Big Tax & Spender



In the 'Reconvened Session' next Wednesday, April 3, the General Assembly will vote on the Governor's substitute bill for HB2313, the monster 6 Billion dollar tax hike, which is disguised as a transportation bill. The biggest tax increase in Virginia history and only 3.5 Billion is for transportation.


Please Call your Delegate and Senator and demand a NO vote on this substitute. The original bill will remain and most of it can then be challenged in court. This is the best option there is to kill this Monster.


Here are the original Votes. If your legislator voted against the bill, please thank him and ask for his assurance he will vote NO again next Wednesday.
