Republican WV Delegates Remain Opposed to Tax Increases

The House and Senate remain at an impasse over the budget, mostly centered on the issue of tax revenue. House and Senate leaders have proposed balancing the state budget through a combination of cuts, borrowing from the rainy day fund and new revenue like a proposed cigarette tax. But a number of Republicans, particularly in the House, are against any new taxes.
