BRISTOL, Va. - Virginia's governor is headed to Bristol Wednesday.
Governor Terry McAuliffe will visit the location of the Falls development Wednesday morning for a special presentation, to sign his first legislative act, and to give his remarks.
The governor pushed a bill through the Virginia legislature to allow the City of Bristol to collect tax revenue directly from the development, instead of sending it to Richmond, then back to Bristol.
In a press release, Bristol city manager Andrew Trivette said, "We are very excited to have the opportunity to, once again, welcome the Governor to Bristol, and to publicly thank him for his support."
This event takes place at 9:45 Wednesday morning in an enclosed tent on the future site of the Cabela's store. It is open to the public.
