Business in brief


Virginia Credit Union recently provided financial education sessions to Girl Scouts of the Commonwealth of Virginia (GSCV) in grades K-10 to help them earn financial literacy badges.

Bill seeks to cut carbon emissions, protect coastline

Del. Ron Villanueva, R-Virginia Beach, has teamed up with Sen. Donald McEachin, D-Henrico, to address the issue. Their bills would use emissions fees from power plants to invest in renewable energy projects in the coal regions of Southwest Virginia and annually pump about $125 million into flood protections and more than $80 million into energy efficiency programs for homeowners. > Read more.
