We promised you eight sensible policy ideas for Virginia’s eighth congressional district. Three weeks ago we talked about gun safety. Two weeks ago we talked about affordable housing. Last week we announced our intention to further Congressman Moran’s work against inhumane testing on animals. Today the topic is Pell Grants. It is time to improve our nation’s signature program for helping more Americans afford higher education. Two proposals especially interest me.
In early September we launched the Beyer Ideas Forums, a weekly series of presentations, followed by Q&As, on our most pressing policy areas. The crowds at these events, held around the 8th District, have proved what we've always known - the residents of the 8th are the best and the brightest in the country. We want to make sure you mark your calendars for our upcomingIdeas Forums - the next of which is TONIGHT.
It’s time to tell you about the next of our 8 Ideas in the 8th! Two weeks ago, we started our eight-week countdown to Election Day, highlighting each week a policy idea that I will pursue if elected to Virginia’s 8th district. This idea is long past overdue: It is time the United States ends animal testing for cosmetics products.
