CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — The West Virginia House of Delegates will vote Friday on a resolution that would bring the state Supreme Court under the Legislature’s control.

Thursday, the House adopted an amendment to the resolution which held that the judiciary’s budget would not be decreased by more than 10 percent compared to the prior year’s appropriation without a separate vote requiring two-thirds majority from each house.
