The Virginia Association of REALTORS® thanks Governor McDonnell and the members of the General Assembly for working together to pass a sustainable transportation funding plan, resulting in HB 2313.

“We know the importance of an adequate, efficient transportation network. It enhances the quality of life in cities and towns across the Commonwealth. Transportation impacts everyone: parents getting children to school, businesses aiming to attract customers, first responders and law enforcement responding to emergencies, and commuters on their way to work,” says Mary Dykstra President of the Virginia Association of REALTORS.

This transportation bill is not perfect, but a result of compromise and working together for the greater good.

Dykstra added, “Transportation is one of the first questions a Realtor is asked about when someone is looking to buy a home anywhere in the Commonwealth. It’s a critical issue to our clients and customers, and to the health of our communities. Realtors want our communities to thrive. That’s why we feel so strongly about this issue, and why we pushed for results.”
