Create a Virginia Commission to Convert from War to Peace Economy
Connecticut has passed a bill creating a commission to plan for conversion from military industries to civilian and environmentally sustainable manufacturing. As a constituent, I urge you to pass similar legislation in our state. For more information, see http://bit.ly/143eIpq
Why is this important?
While military spending produces jobs, it produces fewer of them than civilian spending, or even than tax cuts for working people. It's a drain on the economy, in addition to its other significant drawbacks.
