Del. Greg Habeeb (R-Salem) announced Monday that he has received the Virginia Chamber of Commerce’s Advocate in Legal Reform Award for his efforts in improving Virginia’s legal system during the 2013 General Assembly.
Habeeb also received an “A” grade from the Chamber for his voting record during the session.
“The Legislative Report Card allows us to recognize and honor legislators who uphold free market principles and support the interests of the business community,” said Barry DuVal, President and CEO of the Virginia Chamber. “Delegate Habeeb’s grade of “A” reflects his understanding of the issues facing Virginia businesses. Delegate Habeeb also made significant contributions to advancing one of the Chamber’s main legislative priorities, legal reform, during the 2013 Session and was also awarded the Legal Reform Advocate Award.”
Habeeb was recognized for his award and his pro-business voting record at the Chamber’s Board of Directors’ Reception and Legislative Awards Dinner last week in Tysons Corner, VA.
Habeeb has also received a 95% rating from the Family Foundation for his voting record in the 2013 General Assembly Session.
Habeeb is the Republican candidate running for re-election to the Virginia House of Delegates in the 8th District. The 8th District includes the City of Salem, part of Roanoke County, Craig County, part of Montgomery County and part of the Town of Christiansburg.
