Will Justice Sign a Budget Bill without New Revenue?

West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, Gov. Jim Justice is still pushing lawmakers to approve some kind of revenue increasing measure to prevent major cuts in the 2018 budget. 

That push, though, comes as members of the House and Senate are debating budget bills based solely on a newly released revenue estimate, not tax reform proposals that were once at the center of budget negotiations.

Parkersburg native Mark Poole discusses his start in music with Joni Deutsch in our 30 Days of West Virginia Music series, and another edition of the Poetry Break podcast with the words of Affilachian poet Mitchell L.H. Douglas.
