Governor George Allen: In 1993, George Allen was elected 67thGovernor of Virginia. Keeping the promises he made to Virginians, he successfully cut taxes by more than $600 million; instituted his high academic Standards of Learning and School Performance Report Cards; made neighborhoods safer with the abolition of parole through truth-in-sentencing; initiated historic, pro-work welfare reforms; enacted the nation’s first public-private transportation funding system; repealed or amended 71 percent of all regulations; reduced the size of government with greater efficiency and accountability; and grew the economy – making sure the world knew “Virginia is Open for Business.” With added revenues, Allen was able to freeze tuition rates at universities and community colleges. His administration recruited a record $14 billion in new investments and helped create more than 300,000 net new private sector jobs that helped transform Virginia into the “Silicon Dominion.” Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2000, Allen drove the passage of the 21st Century Nanotechnology Research and Development Act, championed the Minority Serving Institution Digital and Wireless Technology Opportunity Act and sponsored the bipartisan Internet Tax Nondiscrimination Act that prohibited taxes on internet access.
