CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The West Virginia House of Delegates approved a bill that would allow for lawsuits against state entities to be filed in any of West Virginia’s 55 counties.
Members of the House voted 96-0 to advance House Bill 2028 just before noon Tuesday.
The bill will advance to the Senate for consideration.
Current law requires any lawsuits filed against the governor, any state officer or state agency to be filed in Kanawha County Circuit Court.
