West Virginia Special Session Called to Address Budget
On April 26, Gov. Jim Justice called for a special session set to convene May 4 to approve a budget plan. The state currently faces a $500 million shortfall in the 2018 fiscal year budget and there is little consensus among lawmakers on how to address the deficit.
The fiscal year begins July 1, and a budget bill needs passed prior to that date or the state government will face a shut down.
