On The Legislature Today, during his State of the State Address, Gov. Jim Justice presented lawmakers with two plans.
The first was a way to balance the 2018 budget. The second, was a plan to raise more than $1 billion for road construction in the state through a road bond. Since, Justice has been traveling the state promoting that bond plan, but lawmakers have taken little action.
Secretary of the Department of Transportation Tom Smith discusses the proposal and whether Justice has given up on the push for new road funding.
