      • "This is an exciting new growth opportunity for Hardywood Park, one of Virginia's largest and most well-respected craft breweries, into the world's second largest export market for U.S. craft beer,” said Governor McAuliffe. “I am thrilled that our efforts to introduce Virginia companies to export opportunities continue to pay off. After meeting American Craft Beer Company here in London last year and then hosting them in Virginia, it is a pleasure to be back in London to announce their new relationship with Hardywood Park. In order to build the new Virginia economy we need to keep working with companies like Hardywood to open new markets and sales opportunities outside of our borders."

  1. Governor McAuliffe Says Senate Health Bill Would ‘Blow a Hole in Virginia’s Budget’

    Take aways:

    • What are the details of this announcement?
    • “The legislation currently up for a vote in the United States Senate would blow a hole in Virginia’s budget and severely impair our ability to offer health coverage and long-term care to the people who need them most,” said Governor Terry McAuliffe. “The cuts in the current Senate bill would force states like Virginia to choose between cutting benefits for families who need them, slashing investments in other core services like education and transportation, or raising taxes. On behalf of Virginia taxpayers I urge leaders in Washington to drop this effort to push federal health care costs down to the states and work together to make coverage more affordable and accessible for every American.”
