McAuliffe Unveils Business Plan
Terry McAuliffe, a Democratic candidate for governor, said today that he would use infrastructure development grants, tax credits and exemptions and other financial assistance to help bring more jobs to Virginia.
"There's no such thing as a Republican job or a Democratic job - we simply need to bring people together to create good jobs, and that's what I've been doing my whole life," McAuliffe said. "My Business Plan for Virginia is really a jobs plan - my number one priority as governor will be to create, attract, and keep good jobs with good wages and benefits for every Virginia family."
Speaking from Danville, McAuliffe announced that he would create a pilot project to award tax incentives to companies that create jobs that offer benefits, such as health insurance, and are in high-growth industries, such as energy, as well as allow some companies to defer their taxes.
He also pledged to form and serve as chairman of a new committee to advise him on economic issues and to expand small business incubators, which provide office space, supplies and other resources, to new companies.
