Gov. Bob McDonnell will head to Capitol Hill on Wednesday to talk about his favorite topic -- jobs.

McDonnell (R) will testify before the House Committee on Education and Workforce at a hearing about the state of the American workforce.

The governor will discuss policies that foster and sustain job growth in Virginia, as well as current obstacles to job creation in the states.

McDonnell has made job creation the top priority of his administration. This session, he is asking state legislators for $54 million in economic development programs, including $25 million for a research and technology innovation fund and money for small businesses, tourism, the film industry and tax credits.
