Virginians will receive some much-needed tax relief this weekend! This sales tax holiday is an important measure to help Virginians keep more of their hard-earned money when purchasing essential school supplies, clothing, and emergency preparedness items.
Governor Youngkin also announced that tax rebates will start going out to Virginians in the coming days. The budget that Governor Youngkin recently signed into law included a one-time tax rebate of $200 for individuals and $400 for joint filers.
The $5 billion in tax relief Governor Youngkin has enacted in less than two years is helping lower the cost of living in Virginia and reaffirming a simple but powerful principle: your money belongs to YOU, not the government!
This week, the First Lady joined Governor Glenn Youngkin in presenting the 5th 2023 Spirit of Virginia Award to the Wildlife Foundation of Virginia (WFV). The organization’s mission is to preserve Virginia’s natural lands and great outdoors while strengthening the commitment of the Commonwealth to the future of outdoor recreation. It is through careful conservation efforts that generations of sportsmen continue to enjoy the same lands.
The award showcased the First Lady and Governor’s shared appreciation of Virginia’s natural richness and beauty, acknowledging it as a blessing that should be guarded and enjoyed. The Wildlife Foundation of Virginia has not only helped conserve nearly 14,000 acres, it has spearheaded efforts to make the land accessible to Virginia’s Wounded Warriors, and all with mobility impairments, through the creation of wheelchair accessible blinds and ATV property transportation. The WFV has also connected nearly 69,000 youth with the outdoors through their grant program; encouraging a love and respect for the world God created for us. With a plethora of mental and physical health benefits, spending time outdoors is beneficial to everyone, and the presentation of the 5th Spirit of Virginia Award could not have come on a more perfect autumn day.

This week, Governor Youngkin encouraged all Virginians to recognize and celebrate our forests and workers that provide renewable resources that are an essential part of Virginia’s history, economy and culture.
So fun to partner with the Virginia Department of General Services and On The Square RVA earlier this month for the second annual Boots on the Square, making #homehistory in front of the Executive Mansion once again! Thank you to all the wonderful Virginia state employees who came out and enjoyed line dancing, lasso lessons, miniature horses and fresh kettle corn. Until next year!
