Governor-elect Glenn Youngkin has proposed several savings for Virginians, including doubling the standard deduction, a one-time tax rebate, eliminating the grocery tax, and suspending the 10-cent increase in the gas tax. His proposals come at a time when Virginia has a record $2.6 billion budget surplus.

Not everyone agrees with CNBC. The Virginia Industry Foundation last November ranked Virginia as #11.
