CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - Two Virginia lawmakers made a stop at a Montgomery County business on Wednesday in the hopes of boosting the bioscience industry in Virginia.

Delegates Sam Rasoul and Nick Rush took a tour of Polymer Solutions in Christiansburg.

The goal is to see more materials testing facilities, like Polymer Solutions, get started in the Commonwealth. Leaders believe these testing resources can attract a variety of other businesses to Virginia.

"The type of investment that we're all looking for is to increase our technology footprint," said Rasoul. "When we've got industries like Polymer Solutions right here, they really complement what we're doing."

Governor Terry McAuliffe announced a Virginia bioscience initiative back in 2014.
