WHEELING, W.Va. — Senate leaders say a bill to defund the West Virginia Greyhound Development Fund likely won’t make it out of the gate this year after being vetoed by Gov. Jim Justice in 2017.
Senate Majority Leader Ryan Ferns, R-Ohio; and Senate Majority Whip Ryan Weld, R-Brooke, both indicated they weren’t even aware Senate Bill 274 had been reintroduced this session by Sen. Robert Karnes, R-Upshur.
The bill is essentially identical to the one passed by the Legislature, but vetoed by Justice in 2017. Delegate Cindy Frich, R-Monongalia, also has introduced the bill as House Bill 4292 this session.
