President Cole, Speaker Armstead Statement on Court of Claims Report

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Senate President Bill Cole, R-Mercer, and House Speaker Tim Armstead, R-Kanawha, issued the following joint statement today after the release of a Post Audits Committee report regarding serious personnel leave record discrepancies at the state Court of Claims:

“While the complete audit of ongoing leave issues in the Court of Claims will not be finalized until September, and the Court of Claims will be afforded the opportunity to respond, the serious nature of the issues raised requires our immediate attention. We have been diligently reviewing this matter from the moment it came to our attention, we have taken swift action, and will continue to take all appropriate actions going forward to ensure that the law is followed, and that taxpayer funds are properly accounted for.”
