David has a proven record of supporting legislation that makes it easier for Virginia businesses to operate and grow. As a business owner himself, David has first hand knowledge of how burdensome regulations and government red tape impact small businesses and their owners. That is why he introduced legislation that would require agencies to remove a regulation for each new regulation that was added. For his efforts to defend small businesses he has repeatedly received awards from the Virginia Chamber of Commerce.
David is also working to grow the Aerospace industry here in Newport News through his service on the Governor’s Aerospace Advisory Board and by securing $4.2 million in funding to support the expansion of Jefferson Lab. In addition, he regularly lobbies aerospace firms to locate here on the Peninsula.
Not only has Delegate Yancey supported the employees of the Newport News Shipyard by working with them to provide assistance during periods of layoffs, he also has supported legislation for the shipyard and secured funding for projects, including the current work on the foundry building.
As he continues to work on behalf of his constituents, Delegate David Yancey will continue to be a leader in improving Virginia’s economy and supporting pro-business policies to encourage growth and competitiveness.
