“I will oppose and veto any and all efforts to increase taxes. We are in the middle of a pandemic and the absolute last thing hard-working families need is more taxes and more regulation by the career politicians and extremists who are running our Commonwealth in Richmond right now.”
- Signed No New Taxes Pledge
Pete signed the Americans for Tax Reform Taxpayer Protection Pledge to oppose tax increases and new taxes.
- Implement an amendment to the Virginia Constitution requiring a supermajority to raise taxes
Raising taxes has wide-ranging ramifications for both businesses and families. Pete supports changing Virginia laws to force any proposed tax hike to have support from a supermajority in the House of Delegates.
- Making tax code more competitive with other states
Far too many Virginia businesses have been forced to leave Virginia for our neighbors like North Carolina and Tennessee as they grow and expand because of our uncompetitive tax code. Pete will make Virginia competitive and attractive to continue to get the government out of the way of job creators.
