House Democratic Caucus Applauds Governor’s Announcement


CHARLESTON, W.V. – The Democratic members of the House of Delegates are thankful that Governor Justice has “found” the money that we believed was there all along to give meaningful pay raises to teachers, school service personnel, and state employees.

“We call on Senate President Mitch Carmichael and House Speaker Tim Armstead to immediately take action on legislation to ensure these pay raises happen without incurring any additional cost to the taxpayers by having a special session,” House Minority Leader Tim Miley (D-Harrison) urged.

“We must begin work tomorrow on finding a permanent fix to PEIA which is by far the number one concern of public employees and retirees,” Miley stated.
