Gov. Youngkin signs the Virginia State budget

Governor Glenn Youngkin announced in an email the signing of the state budget for Virginia.

With the signing Youngkin says he delivers on his promise to provide tax relief for Virginia families.

In fact the budget includes the largest tax relief in the state’s history at $4 billion.

The tax relief includes eliminating the 1.5 percent grocery tax in 2023 and nearly doubles the standard deduction and offers a tax rebate for Virginians.

Other features of the budget include more relief for veterans over 55 as well as boosts for  education spending including raises for teachers.

The budget also includes law enforcement benefits and funds to reinvigorate state agencies.
