The West Virginia State Police hoped to expand their Crimes Against Children Unity but a line item veto from Gov. Tomblin has halted that expansion. The West Virginia Environmental Quality Board is reviewing an order issued by the DEP that revokes a waste disposal permit in Fayette County. Also, the towns of Matewan and Grafton will have grant funding as part of their participation in the Turn This Town Around project.
