Justice Introduces Budget Countdown Clock

CHARLESTON– Two days after saying it was “pitiful” for the West Virginia Legislature to have not yet produced a budget, Gov. Jim Justice introduced a “budget countdown” clock on his website, ticking down to the end of the regular session on April 8.
According to a news release from Justice’s office the clock serves as a reminder for the West Virginia House of Delegates and Senate to move quickly in order to pass a responsible budget before the session ends.

In an effort to make the countdown clock visible at the capitol, the clock will also be displayed in the governor’s reception room.
