Governor Glenn Youngkin rallied at The Harbour Grille in Woodbridge to tout the new state budget, which he recently signed. Youngkin announced that the budget would give millions in funding to schools, police, and mental health treatment.

Toward the end of his speech, Youngkin took time to chastise senate Democrats in the Virginia General Assembly for not agreeing to a suspension of the state's gas tax.

Youngkin expressed his disappointment that an agreement could not be reached with senate Democrats to deal with the rising gas price in a time of inflation being felt across the world.
