Create a Virginia Commission to Convert from War to Peace Economy

Petition Text

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

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.

Virginia, United States
