Statement from Senate President Bill Cole on Workplace Freedom, Prevailing Wage Vetoes

CHARLESTON – Senate President Bill Cole, R-Mercer, issued the following statement in response to Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin’s vetoes of Senate Bill 1 and House Bill 4005 today:

“I am not surprised at Governor Tomblin’s decision to veto these bills, but I am disappointed. From the beginning, I have said the Senate is committed to doing what is necessary in order to move our state forward. I believe both of these bills – the West Virginia Workplace Freedom Act and the repeal of the state’s prevailing wage law – accomplish this goal. The Senate will not delay action to override these vetoes.”
