Manchin Decision Could Cost W.Va. Families Hundreds Per Month

WSAZ – West Virginia families are set to lose hundreds of dollars per month starting in January after Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., decided not to support President Joe Biden’s Build Back Better (BBB) legislation. Read the full article.

That bill includes the expansion of the current Child Tax Credit (CTC) that sends up to $300 per month per child to families across the country. The bill also included funding for paid family leave, help to rebuild former coal communities and other major social spending initiatives to complement the infrastructure bill that was passed earlier this year.

The West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy said the CTC has helped more than 346,000 children in the state. Those monthly payments are set to end in January if they are not renewed.
