Senator Mark Warner Announces the Fair Shot for All Virginians Tour
ALEXANDRIA – Today U.S. Sen. Mark R. Warner will kick off his Fair Shot for All Virginians Tour, highlighting his efforts to boost entrepreneurship, tourism and sound economic policies across the Commonwealth.
Over five days, Senator Warner will make stops throughout Virginia to discuss his work in the Senate to create jobs and grow the economy by advancing policies that encourage small business growth, address the student debt crisis and bring jobs back to Virginia, rather than sending them overseas.
As Governor, Mark Warner helped bring nearly 130,000 jobs to the Commonwealth and helped Virginia earn the designation as the nation’s best state for business and the best-managed state.
Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2008, Senator Warner is widely viewed as a bipartisan consensus-builder. He has worked across the aisle to incentivize local companies to keep their jobs in Virginia, to create targeted tax incentives through the Startup Act 3.0 and to promote innovation through crowd funding and reducing unnecessary costs for small businesses.
Senator Warner continues to fight to protect jobs in Virginia, working with the Navy to maintain full funding for its 11-carrier fleet in Norfolk and reaffirming his support for the Export-Import Bank, an economic driver that has supported nearly 100 Virginia businesses and $1 billion in economic growth in Virginia since 2007.
Senator Warner will continue to reach across the aisle to ensure that the right polices are put in place to power our 21st century economy, creating more jobs and providing a fair shot for all Virginians.
