WVC 7 - 23 - 2 §7-23-2. Legislative intent and findings.
(a) Legislative intent. -- It is the intent of the Legislature in enacting this article to provide a framework within which new ideas can be explored to see if they can or should be implemented on a statewide basis.

(b) Legislative findings. -- The Legislature finds and declares that:

(1) County commissions, municipalities and county boards of education today face numerous challenges managing their budgets and other resources and delivering services required by federal or state law or demanded by their constituents.

(2) Local units of government are sometimes restricted by policies, rules and regulations that prevent them from carrying out their duties and responsibilities in a cost effective, efficient and timely manner. To address this concern, this pilot program includes a waiver program whereby county commissions, municipalities and county boards of education may apply to the Governor for waiver of a specific policy, rule or regulation.
