Justice Says Postponing Federal Stimulus Negotiations is ‘Not Good’

West Virginia MetroNews – Gov. Jim Justice says President Trump should not suspend negotiations on the latest round of federal coronavirus relief. Read full article.

“I don’t want him to do that,” Justice said today, “and I do not think that’s the thing to do.”

New data out this week shows that two-thirds of renters in West Virginia are facing eviction and thousands of unemployed workers are nearing exhaustion of their unemployment benefits, said Kelly Allen, executive director at the West Virginia Center on Budget & Policy.

Justice’s administration should make a priority of getting the remainder of West Virginia’s original $1.25 billion in federal relief into the hands of those who need it, Allen said.

“With a long road ahead until West Virginia’s economy fully recovers and serious doubts as to whether additional federal relief is coming,” she said, “Governor Justice must target remaining CARES Act funds to those who need it the most by the December 30 deadline.”
