The biggest tax increase in the history of Virginia, bill HB2313, has passed the Senate with a 25 to 15 vote. I will update this post with the names of the Senators on each side as soon as they are published.
This will be McDonnell’s legacy, a huge tax burden on Virginia families, including a sales tax increase to 6% in NOVA, a 20% increase.
How do YOU feel about McDonnell’s tax increase? Vote here.
