“RICHMOND – Governor Bob McDonnell announced today that Virginia has posted back to back months of revenue growth, marking the first time in two years the Commonwealth has achieved this result. “
Good news – but perhaps the best news is contained in the final lines of the press release (emphasis mine):
“Today’s news can be seen as a small indicator that some positive developments are taking place in our overall economy. However, we have a long way to go before we emerge from one of the deepest and most persistent economic downturns in our history. Unemployment is far too high, and Virginians are struggling to make ends meet, provide for their families and manage their businesses. We will continue to focus on putting in place pro-growth policies that encourage job creation and help get Virginia’s economy firmly back on track.”
Hmmm…seems like commonsense government. I’m just sayin’.
