Missed Opportunities to Put West Virginia on a Path to Prosperity

Posted: Updated:

As the legislative session comes to a close, I can't help but think of the missed opportunities.
Other than a modicum of education reform, our lawmakers did very little to put this state on a path to prosperity.


We're being bombarded with messages about lower-than-expected tax revenues and the limited growth of our major industries – yet most members of our legislature seemed more concerned with gun politics and other non issues.


Rather than take bold steps toward a better West Virginia, sadly, we got more of the same.
