Bolling jets off to Italy for economic development speech

Anita Kumar

Lt. Gov. Bill Bolling (R) leaves today for a weeklong trip to Italy to participate in an economic development symposium.

The topic? The role of higher education in economic development.

Bolling, the state's chief jobs creation officer, will also meet with several Italian officials, but does not plan on talking to any companies interested in relocating in Virginia.

The City of Florence is picking up the travel costs of about $2,000, according to Bolling's office. James Madison University, which has a study abroad program, is housing Bolling. No state money will be spent on the trip.

Bolling is being joined on the trip by his wife, Jean Ann. The Bollings will pay for expenses that are not related to the participation in the symposium.
