The Trouble With Virginia's Growth Legislation

Leonard Gilroy sees two problems with Virginia's proposed growth legislation and explains why he thinks it would steer the state in the wrong direction.

"A centerpiece of Virginia Governor-elect Timothy Kaine's successful campaign was proposed legislation that would 'stop out-of-control development that increases traffic.' While this was music to the ears of voters fed up with long commutes and traffic congestion, this legislation would run a serious risk of crippling the state's thriving construction industry, driving housing prices higher for families in the Commonwealth, and encouraging the urban sprawl that Governor-elect wants to prevent."
