West Virginia Morning
West Virginia Public Broadcasting

On this West Virginia Morning, four current and former Richwood officials were indicted and arrested earlier this month on charges they embezzled money from the city. Some of those charges are related to the misuse of public funds after a devastating flood in June 2016. Dave Mistich spoke with state Auditor John B. McCuskey about his office’s investigation into Richwood and other efforts to combat fraud around the state.

Also on today's show, a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators have introduced a bill that would provide consistent funding for a popular land conservation program that has impacted 54 of West Virginia’s 55 counties. Brittany Patterson has more.
