§12-4A-1. Legislative findings.
The Legislature finds that there is no centralized state
authority responsible for receiving and referring reports of
possible fraud, misappropriation of, mismanagement or waste of
state funds. It is the intent of the Legislature to see that all
state funds are utilized for the maximum benefit of the people of
the state of West Virginia. The Legislature finds that it is
important to provide the people of this state with both a forum and
an opportunity to report suspected fraud, waste or abuse of state
funds, and to have those reports properly investigated.
