West Virginia Special Session Ends
Gov. Jim Justice announced Tuesday evening legislators had completed their special session and passed six bills.
The special session was called after West Virginia voters overwhelmingly voted in favor of a road bond levy.
Bills passed include increasing civil penalties for contractors who do not hire at least 75 percent of their workforce from West Virginia, allowing the sharing of certain information between the West Virginia Division of Highways and West Virginia Tax Commissioner, and exempting military pensions from the state’s personal income tax.
