SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 21

(By Senator Snyder)


Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study the feasibility of reclassifying counties based upon governmental functions and activities.

Whereas, Because of the diversity of the various counties in West Virginia, such as border counties, land-use planning, size and population of the county, industry and natural resources, geographical location and local interests and problems, there should be a system of reclassifying the counties; and
Whereas, All of the counties of the state are basically treated the same by law in the code as to authority or power to act and a reclassification of counties by statue would produce a system allowing certain counties to deal with their internal problems that do not affect the other counties of the state; and
Whereas, Such a reclassification would in all likelihood result in savings to the counties and the State of West Virginia; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:

That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study the feasibility of reclassifying counties based upon governmental functions and activities; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
