Delegate Rust Receives “A+” Rating

The Virginia Chamber of Commerce recognized Del. Tom Rust (R-86) at their annual Legislative Awards Recognition Dinner for his support on initiatives that have helped move Virginia forward. Rust received an “A+” rating for supporting pro-business legislation during the 2013 General Assembly session.

Delegate Rust said, “During the past several years, the General Assembly has focused on strengthening Virginia’s economy and creating jobs. Virginia’s unemployment is now at 5.3 percent, the lowest unemployment rate east of the Mississippi River, and this is a result of our efforts to increase job growth and promote Virginia businesses.”

Barry DuVal, president and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, said, “The Legislative Report Card allows us to recognize and honor legislators who uphold free market principles and support the interests of the business community.”

The Virginia Chamber of Commerce is the commonwealth’s largest business advocacy organization with more than 13,000 members.
