President Cole


Statement from Senate President Bill Cole on mid-year budget cuts

Senate President Bill Cole, R-Mercer, issued the following statement in response to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s announcement that he would enact a 2 percent, across-the-board mid-year budget cut:

“While this mid-year budget cut is unfortunate, it certainly should not come as a surprise. Our state is deeply entrenched in perhaps the worst fiscal crisis in a generation, and these kinds of difficult decisions are necessary to ease some of the burden. I applaud Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin for proactively addressing this issue head-on, and I am confident that passing a sound, strong budget will be a top priority for next year’s Legislative leadership."
