George Allen To Discuss "Keys To Success In The 21st Century"


Dallas - George Allen - one of the new breed of popular Republican Governors that have had a transforming effect on their states - will be in Dallas Wednesday, to discuss what he sees as the keys to success in the 21st Century for every state in the nation.

Speaking to a luncheon crowd at the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas co-sponsored by the National Center for Policy Analysis (NCPA), the former governor of Virginia and current NCPA Distinguished Fellow will outline his blueprint for any state's success. This three-pronged blueprint combines having a positive pro-growth tax policy, sound reasonable regulations, and establishing a system of high academic standards which holds everyone accountable for achieving them - a component he feels is essential in order to produce the highly skilled workforce needed for today's economy.

Allen gained national acclaim for his ability to move beyond partisan rhetoric to enact legislation based on common-sense conservative principles. Foremost among his administration's accomplishments was the passage of the new "Standards of Learning" tests that hold schools accountable for academic achievement. He also enacted pro-growth tax and regulatory policies that played a key role in attracting a record $14 billion in new investments into Virginia and creating 312,000 net new private sector jobs.
