Glenn Youngkin on Government Reform



Streamline or cut small business operational requirements

Youngkin's plan to lower the cost of living includes lower income taxes, a requirement of voter approval to raise property taxes, the elimination of Virginia's grocery tax and a one-year suspension of a recent hike to its gas tax. Youngkin asserts Democratic economic policies have killed job growth. He campaigned against business lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic and pledged to streamline or cut operational requirements for small businesses.

For total overhaul of the Virginia Employment Commission

Youngkin called for a complete and total overhaul of the Virginia Employment Commission as Virginia still ranks last in the nation for resolving unemployment claims. More than 1.5 million Virginians have filed for unemployment in the past year. The average wait time for claims awaiting appeal is 247 days, and some applicants have been waiting more than a year to receive financial assistance.
