NFIB Urges Governor to Veto Bad Bills

Gov. Glenn Youngkin has 30 days to sign, amend, or veto the bills

With the General Assembly’s regular session winding down, NFIB is turning its attention to preventing a slew of bad bills from being signed into law.

“There’s a lot of legislation pending right now in the House or Senate that would have a big impact on small businesses,” NFIB State Director Julia Hammond said. These include:

  • HB1/SB1, bills that increase the state minimum wage from $12 an hour to $13.50 by Jan. 1 and $15 by Jan. 1, 2026. These bills passed the House and Senate along party lines and are on their way to the Governor’s desk.
  • SB373, a measure that would require the commonwealth to create a government-run family and medical leave program funded by a tax on employers and employees. Passed the House and Senate and is headed to the Governor.

“Our members are urging Governor Youngkin to veto these bills, which will drive up the cost of doing business in the commonwealth,” Hammond said.

This year’s session of the General Assembly ends on March 9. Governor Youngkin has 30 days to sign, amend, or veto the bills. The General Assembly will return to Richmond for a single-day reconvened session to consider all of the governor’s amendments and vetoes.
