West Virginia MetroNews – Gov. Jim Justice’s big tax proposal has been introduced in the House of Delegates, and the governor is telling West Virginians to close their eyes and just imagine the results. Read the full article.
“My plan will seize a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform West Virginia’s tax structure; raising wages, raising home values, bringing in more businesses, more people and making life better for all West Virginians,” the governor promised in a promotional and explanatory document shared this week with with legislators, lobbyists and associations and more.
The final page of the document makes an even bigger claim for West Virginians who may wish upon a star:
“DisneyWorld may become a reality for West Virginia.”
Pixie dust aside, it’s not clear where that claim came from except that a citizen asked Justice about the possibility during a recent virtual town hall. The governor responded affirmatively that he’d like to see a major theme park here.
