Governor Goes Off on State Spending Restrictions Built into Latest Federal Relief Bill

West Virginia MetroNews – Gov. Jim Justice isn’t happy about about some restrictions for how states can use federal relief built into the plan passed by the U.S. Senate. Read the full article.

“It’s all about just petty nothing,” Justice said today. “That’s the only reason that got written in there.”

The $1.9 trillion federal relief package includes restrictions saying states can’t use the money to directly or indirectly offset reductions in net tax revenue.

This comes at a moment when Justice has talked up a big federal relief package. And, also when he is touting a big state income tax cut.
