Northern Virginia (PRWEB) July 17, 2014
The Northern Virginia Chamber Partnership today released its inaugural Virginia General Assembly Legislative Scorecard, a report that details the voting records of the Partnerships Senate and House of Delegates members on the bills that address the issues outlined in the Partnerships 2014 Legislative Agenda.
Comprised of the Dulles Regional, Greater Reston and Loudoun County chambers of commerce, the Northern Virginia Chamber Partnership recently completed its fifth year of working in Richmond to represent the economic and quality of life interests of the businesses and residents in Loudoun County and western Fairfax County.
As the voice of business for our region, our Partnership actively engages our legislators on issues such as education reform, economic development, job growth, transportation, and other pro-business issues. As a follow-up to the General Assembly, the Partnership decided to do a Legislative Scorecard to keep Northern Virginia employers and citizens informed about how our legislators are voting on the issues that matter to business. As we expected, we were very pleased to see that our General Assembly delegation, as a whole, has been extremely supportive of the Northern Virginia Chamber Partnerships economic prosperity and quality of life agenda,” said Dulles Regional Chamber President and CEO Eileen Curtis.
The Scorecard only reflects votes taken during the regular General Assembly session and only those votes that took place on the floor of the House and/or Senate. Many members of the Partnerships delegation provided leadership in defeating legislation that was in conflict with the Partnerships priorities, which is not reflected in the Scorecard in most cases given those bills did not receive a floor vote. Prior to all floor votes, the Partnership communicated its position on each bill and reminded the legislators that these bills would be included in the Scorecard.
Scorecards are a valuable tool to communicate how our legislators are voting on those bills that do make it to a floor vote in each respective body in a quantifiable way. That being said, they are imperfect as they dont take into account factors such as: sponsoring bills, speaking for or against bills, votes in committee and offering pro-business amendments. But we do believe this format is the most straightforward way of identifying legislators support for the Partnerships initiatives, said Greater Reston Chamber President & CEO, Mark Ingrao.
In addition, while not included in the Scorecard as an actual vote that could be scored, the Partnership considers every legislators work incomplete, given they failed to pass a budget during the regular General Assembly session, and did not resolve the issue of providing health insurance to 400,000 uninsured Virginians.
We are proud to unveil this Legislative Scorecard to provide our members and the communities we represent with a better understanding of how our state legislators are voting on the issues that will impact the economy and quality of life in Northern Virginia. While most legislators earned high marks for their voting records on the Partnerships priorities, each of them deserves an incomplete grade for failing to leverage billions in Federal aid to adopt a market-based approach to expanding health care coverage for all Virginians, said Loudoun County President & CEO Tony Howard.
The purpose of the Scorecard is to help Northern Virginias business leaders recognize those legislators who support the Partnerships efforts to improve the business climate and quality of life in Northern Virginia and to promote a dialogue with those legislators whose votes dont align with Partnership priorities.

Insurance products are typically not priced in a single package and usually require customization between consumers and agencies in North America. The Quotes Pros company is now displaying the best life insurance rates for 2014 that can be found using its public price search tool at http://quotespros.com/life-insurance.html.
The price information that consumers can easily access is helping to take the guesswork out of the annual price packages that insurers promote in the U.S. Special rates data for guaranteed, term, whole, universal and survivorship policies can be easily viewed to help adults plan for a future purchase.
“The tools that we offer publicly are secure and do not use medical information, address information or other personal consumer data to produce a basic price quote,” said a QuotesPros.com source.
The insurer rates information is accurately calculated by individual agencies that supply a base price package that can be further customized upon completion of a short application with each insurer. The Quotes Pros company is not set up to collect any forms of consumer data during the quotation procedure.
“Any American adult with a validated zip code has access to the best pricing that we are now delivering through our website,” said the source.
The Quotes Pros company is planning the additions of health, automotive and homeowner pricing to its system for the remainder of this year. Base price quotes for these plans are now accessible in beta mode at http://quotespros.com/auto-insurance.html.
The QuotesPros.com company provides an easier way to find direct insurance costs using its easy search program on the Internet. This company has developed and installed database software that connects consumers with insurers in real time. The QuotesPros.com company website allows users to gain entry to its secure system by using a zip code and prices are immediately displayed. Coverage for life, renters, health, business and homeowner plans are now easier to price online.

Nothing says summer like a bright, sunny day. However, exposure to the sun can be dangerous, especially when it comes to harmful UV rays. Thats why Amica Insurance is sharing these five tips from the American Cancer Society to promote sun safety this summer:
Know when the sun is at its most powerful, as UV light is strongest between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. If unsure, use the shadow test: If your shadow is shorter than you are, the suns rays are at their strongest.
Dont be fooled by hazy days. UV rays can still be dangerously strong, even when the sunlight is blocked or indirect.
Cover as much skin as possible. Long-sleeved shirts and pants offer the most protection, and dark colors provide more protection than light colors.
Apply sunscreen properly. A palmful should be used to cover the arms, neck, legs and face. Sunscreen should be reapplied at least every two hours possibly more often, as it can wash off with water or sweat.
Wear UV-blocking sunglasses. The correct sunglasses protect the delicate skin around eyes and the eyes themselves. Sunglasses should block 99 to 100 percent of UVA and UVB rays. Look for labels that say UV absorption up to 400 nm or Meets ANSI UV Requirements.
The Environmental Protection Agency has a UV Index Search to look up the strength of UV rays in your area on a daily basis. The index, combined with these five tips, can help protect you from UV rays this summer.
