CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A bill passed the House of Delegates calling for the establishment of 100 single representative delegate districts in West Virginia.
House Bill 4002 passed the House Monday in a 72-25 vote.
If approved and signed into law, Wood County’s 10th District would be split into three individual districts.
Delegate Frank Deem, R-10th, of Wood County was one of the bill’s co-sponsors.
Deem said he supported the bill because it clearly defined who represented an area. Being from a three-member district, it was hard for people to know who represented them in the House, Deem said.
