The Law Works - State Budget

May 30, 2014

Do you have a budget? How do you create it? Is it easy to follow? The State of West Virginia has a budget. It is not easy to create, and it is not easy to follow.  Dan Ringer and guest State Senator Roman Prezioso, Chair of the West Virginia State Senate Finance Committee will talk about the West Virginia State Budget on this episode of The Law Works.

Lawmakers try to make sense of the state budget in the absence of a few bills that Senator Roman Prezioso says needed to pass but didn't. Climate change researchers Lonnie and Ellen Thompson warn their audience about the carbon footprint we're making. One area of Huntington will soon see demolition and construction that could go a long way towards changing the city’s reputation.
