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.
