Tonight at a special Board of County Supervisors Meeting, Supervisors Nohe, Lawson, Angry and Anderson voted against a measure that would have led to a massive tax increase on over 4,000 businesses in Prince William County.

The measure would have increased operating costs, potentially limited a business’ ability to invest in new technology and would have devastated economic development in the region.

“This is not just a victory for the Prince William Chamber, the Technology Industry and the over 4,000 businesses that would have been impacted by this massive tax hike. This is a win for the entire region and says that despite political pressure we have leaders who understand and want a stable and predictable business environment,” said Ross Snare, Director of Communications and Government Affairs for the Prince William Chamber of Commerce.

Snare went on to say, “We need to work together to make the Prince William Region the best place for businesses to want to come and grow. Supervisors Nohe, Lawson, Angry and Anderson showed us tonight that we have the leadership to accomplish that. We at the Chamber look forward to collaborating with ALL the Supervisors to make the Prince William Region the best place to live, work, play and do business!”
