Legislation Advancing to Help The Falls Development in Bristol
Legislation to help Bristol Virginia’s payment plan for The Falls Development at I- 81’s Exit 5 has been introduced on the House floor and is expected to get a final vote Friday. It’s legislation the city needs to issue revenue bonds and repay them with sales tax revenue from businesses that develop. Senator Phillip Puckett, who at the urging of the governor, revived the bill, says it will position Bristol Virginia to compete. “Makes them competitive with their neighbors across the state line," he said. "That’s what the intent of this legislation is to keep the Virginia side on a level playing field for economic development.” (LM)
