Legislature Passes Budget, Roads Package, Adjourns to Date Certain

This evening, both the House of Delegates and state Senate combined to pass the FY 2018 Budget Bill and a package of bills to fund road improvement projects.

Senate Bill 1013, the Budget Bill, passed both bodies today with strike and insert amendment for the budget that limits cuts to Medicaid and higher education through use of transfers and expected surpluses. The bill was an agreed to version with the Senate and House of Delegates which includes $4.225 billion budget for general revenue. The bill goes to the governor for his consideration.

Also, the Legislature passed SB 1006, increasing funding for the road fund, and, SB 1003, relating generally to WV Parkways Authority. These measures will also go to the Governor for his consideration. 

The Legislature also adopted HCR 2, providing for an adjournment of the Legislature until June 26, 2017. 

Both the Senate and House of Delegates will reconvene at 11:00 a.m. on June 26th, 2017.
