CHARLESTON, W.Va. — The 2018 session of the 83rd West Virginia Legislature kicked off with a bang Wednesday, with more than 500 bills being introduced in both houses.
Legislators were excited for the new session, partially due to more optimistic budget projections than this time last year.
While the state has yet to hear Gov. Jim Justice’s plans for the year as of press time, legislators have already proposed several hundred bills dealing with topics ranging from opioid prescribing to the speed limits on the state’s highways.
Specifically, he has introduced a bill that would provide a tax credit for five years to incentivize building on former coal sites.
