I would say honorable but your actions speak louder than your words, you had two chances to truly show your support to our Vetrens in HB 130 and HB 131 and you killed them both this session. Stop calling Virginia a Vetren friendly state or put your money where your mouth is by reinstating and passing these bills!

The legislature is considering a bill to provide a $500 tax credit for people that telecommute to work. However they cannot provide a tax break for the state's retired veterans in a time when the economy is hurting. For the record, if someone has a job and doesn't spend money commuting to work....THEY DON'T NEED A TAX BREAK.
