As Governor of Virginia, George Allen brought sweeping reform that made Virginia a national model in economic development, public safety, education accountability, and creative government. As a self-described “Common Sense Jeffersonian Conservative,” Allen passed monumental, bipartisan reform of the criminal justice, education and welfare systems and transformed Virginia’s economy with a focus on lower taxes, prompt permitting, smaller and smarter government, recruitment, education, right to work laws, and safe communities. These common sense policies brought over 314,000 net new jobs to Virginia in four years, many in technology based fields.
Elected to the United States Senate in 2000, George Allen continued to advocate policies to make the United States a leader in innovation and technology. In 2001, he was appointed Chairman of the Senate High Tech Task Force and later in his term he created the Competitive Caucus to keep the United States the “world capital of innovation”. Allen was a member on the Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, Small Business and Entrepreneurship Committee, the Energy and Natural Resources Committee as well as Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s Subcommittee on European Affairs. Allen has supported policies to achieve American Energy Freedom through common sense, practical conservation; advancements in technology and nanotechnology to make batteries more efficient and materials stronger and lighter; expanding the use of clean, Advanced Nuclear; creativity utilizing America’s own vast natural resources such as abundant, American Clean Coal and further exploration for oil and natural gas under our land and water.
