Tuition assistance for National Guard, plus Tech Talent
I'm proposing specific tuition assistance for National Guard members so that the men and women who step forward to keep us safe in times of need can advance in their civilian careers as well. Our National Guard members offer critical help, responding
during and after disasters or other missions.
As we've learned from economic development projects, including the Amazon headquarters, good jobs come to states and communities whose workers are ready for high tech jobs.
That is why our administration is proud to partner with legislative leaders of both parties in proposing a Tech Talent Investment Fund, which will offer grants to our higher education institutions to help them
provide more computer science degrees. Our goal is to produce up to 17,500 more bachelor's degrees in computer science over the next 20 years. This is an investment in our people and our future.

Strengthen Virginia's relationship with the Armed Services
I will work hard to strengthen the relationships Virginia has with the Armed Services. The Commonwealth's military installations are critical to maintaining America's national security, and I understand what the military means to our economy.
As a U.S. Army veteran, I also understand the challenges that our servicemen and women face every day. I am committed to helping government work for them, and for the thousands of retired military personnel living across Virginia.
