The VA Tea Party Patriots Federation opposes any new legislation that further expands government or increases spending until after a full audit of Virginia state government; the elimination of waste, fraud, and abuse; and a substantial reduction in the Commonwealth’s dependency on Federal funds. (Currently, Federal funds are 38% of the Virginia budget not including loan guarantees or the proposed expansion of Medicaid) We will continue to oppose any new taxes, fees, tax credits, grants, and bonding authority until waste, fraud, and abuse have been eliminated.

We will work for passage of Legislation that requires, upon citizen request, full disclosure of Public-Private Partnerships established under the 1995 VA Public-Private Partnership Transportation Act, including the names of officers, directors, and partners, as well as full disclosure of corporate and individual investors and beneficiaries.

We will continue our strong support for a ‘Lock Box’ for transportation funds.
