Youngkin Signs VEC Reform Measures
Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin has signed several bills into law that will provide meaningful reform to the Virginia Employment Commission. Youngkin says the bills will help make government work for the people again. The COVID pandemic according to Youngkin exposed a lot of inefficiencies in Virginia government agencies and according to a release the agency was ripe for fraud and abuse. The bipartisan legislation puts proper guardrails in place at VEC and will require them to work with other state agencies to verify unemployment claims.
