2023 Virginia Legislative Competitiveness Scorecard
Transparency is essential to understanding the actions of legislators. The Virginia Legislative Competitiveness Scorecard will better inform members how frequently each legislator votes for manufacturing competitiveness. Scoring is based on votes involving select VMA Priority and Defensive Priority bills. Legislators are given credit for voting for the VMA position, and penalized for voting against it. All legislators scoring 70% (C) or better are honored with the VMAPAC Legislative Competitiveness Certificate. The recipients of the top 3 scores in the Senate and House of Delegates are honored with the VMAPAC Industrial Strength Leadership Award to recognize their exemplary commitment to Virginia’s manufacturing competitiveness.
2022 Virginia Manufacturing Competitiveness plan
Advanced technology industries, such as manufacturing, are essential to the United States of America and Virginia economies. Due to the global nature of manufacturing, industry is susceptible to the increasing costs of taxation, energy, regulation, and more. Virginia has an opportunity to reinforce and improve its position as a national leader in manufacturing. VMA publishes the annual Virginia Manufacturing Competitiveness Plan to guide its advocacy strategy and educate political leaders.
