CHARLESTON, WV — Today, Governor Jim Justice announced that he is calling the West Virginia Legislature into a special session on Thursday, May 4.

“There’s been a lot of dialogue with both sides of the aisle, the House, the Senate and I believe we are on the verge of doing something great for the people of West Virginia,” said Governor Jim Justice.The first budget sent to me from the Legislature would be devastating to our people because it would mean walking away from higher education, our veterans, our public schools, our seniors, a teacher’s pay raise, marketing our state with more tourism jobs, and 48,000 road building jobs. It would’ve been catastrophic.”

Justice added, “We have the chance to put West Virginia on a pathway to prosperity in a bipartisan way. The budget can’t just kick the can, it’s got to bring opportunity, hope, and jobs to our people.”
