Virginia’s economic development efforts featured in Wall Street Journal

Virginia’s focus on increasing its budget for economic development efforts was featured in today’s Wall Street Journal. The article said the state has been particularly aggressive in doling out business incentives to attract jobs and capital investments.

Also, yesterday Gov. Bob McDonnell announced that the state signed an agreement with Norfolk Southern Corp. that will lead to railroad tracks being upgraded between Norfolk and Petersburg, which could allow Amtrak to offer passenger rail service along that route by 2013. That would allow Fredericksburg residents to take the train to Norfolk.
